I have five users in a remote location that are unable to open their archive from a network drive.  I have verified that they have full access rights, I have repaired the archives with SCANPST.exe and placed the new archive for access and I have even deleted and recreated their network drives just in case their was a flaw in the policy.  I have been able to allow the users to gain access temporarily, then it seems like the next business day, they are back to square one.  Any help is greatly appreciated with this matter.  If more detail is needed, please let me know and I will be more than happy to give more information.  Thanks.

Greetings, Jeff_Dickinson !

Accessing archive.pst file over the network do not work well.

You could copy the archive.pst to the user local computer and let user use from there. You can backup the file at night to the network drive.

Best wishes!

I did try that and it works great.  However, due to company policy, we do not allow access to the local disk to our standard users.

Outlook works best with pst file in the local machine. The problem with archive.pst on network is that if the connection on the network drops, even temporarily, you loose connection.
