I know that there is a place in outlook properties to see the path of the PST files to be able to locate and move if I have to blow away outlook and re-install. I know I can do a *.pst in search but I was told I could also see the path in the outlook properties as well?

    Greetings, millerdog !

    Outlook Express will show the path to the stored folder, but not Outlook.  PST file is located in
    C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder.

    PST file is a hidden file. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  Click OK.

    Best wishes!
