Archiving After Rearranging Folders

Hello,

Thanks for reading our question! We have numerous folders and sub-folders on one machine.  Recently, we rearranged them: deleting some, renaming and moving others.  We want to archive our messages.  We have archived before.  This is our question:

When we archive this time, what will Outlook do with the old folder structure it archived before?  Are archives saved uniquely?  Put another way: In the original archive we made there were message-holding folders:

A
Sub 1
Sub 2
Sub 3


Now we have

A
Sub 1

B
Sub 1

When we run the archiving routine, what will it do to the previous folder structure?  A, Sub 2 and 3 do not exist any more.  B and B, Sub 1 are new.  Will the new archive be a fully independent structure, or will it try to integrate with the previous structure?

Many thanks,

Yunkaa

You can choice a different file name for unique outlook archive

or

Outlook will try to "integrate" with the old archive if you want to have the same name

Hello Servicegroup,

Thanks for replying!  So, when we start the archive process we will be able to specify a unique foldr/location?  Will that folder also be in our list of folders?

Many thanks,

Yunkaa

Through my experience, you can chose an target archive file location.

The new Archive Folders will be at the same level as Personal Folders (The old one will still be there and so will be the new one)

-Personal Folders
  -Delete ITems
  -...
  -Inbox
  -...
-Archive Folders
