Greetings, npe511 !

What Outlook and Exchange are you using?

1. See if the following article may be the cause.

XCLN: "Unable to Load Personal Free/Busy Data" Error Message When You Quit Outlook
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320028

The solution is to create a new Outlook profile.

2. Do you have your Free/Busy data synchronised to the web? Check and see if your settings are still correct. When you don't know what I'm talking about see if it is not configured by accident. Goto Tools-> Options-> button CalendarOptions...-> button Free/Busy Options...-> uncheck the Internet Free/Busy options.

3. Clear and regenerate free/busy information. The following switch can only be used when you are able to connect to your Microsoft Exchange server.

Go to Start menu, Run command, and type:

Outlook /cleanfreebusy

Occasionally you'll need to use the full path to Outlook, so the command line looks like:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe " /cleanfreebusy

Best wishes!
