outlook.pst file in two places

We used to run Windows 98, and therefore had the pst files on the server for security purposes.  We have long since migrated to W2K and XP, and realizing that this dramtaically slowed down outlook, we copied the pst files to the local machines.  It appears that Outlook is still updating, or at least attaching to the original files.  The files on the server, although a different size, show current dates even though we did this weeks ago.

I have renamed the PST files (note I could not do this while users were using outlook due to a sharing violation!) and this will likely stop this ghost issues.  Has anyone seen anything like this or know what is going on?

Hi sumton,

In outlook , go to file ---> date file management and remove the location personal folders.
go to file ---> open and put the outlook data file to the location were you have your outlook.pst file

Check if that would work
