Hi Guys

I haver a user who was 7 pst files which have a combined limited of roughly 10gb.
This particular user needs to have access to the pst files even when offline.
Can anyone suggest a better way than having pst offline?

I cant and and i just want to know of any other way.

Many Thanks

I think they will need to be on his laptop, are the majority of the files for reference only rather than for adding more to? A copy on his machine and a backup copy on a server just in case.

I dont think there is any other way of accessing the files when not connected.

if disk space is an issue maybe an external HDD would be the solution - you need write permissions to read a pst so burning to disk wouldnt help.

Hi Stuart

Many thanks for your replies.
You have basicly said what i thought, there is no easy way of doing this, i will have to make copies available offline and also a backup solution.

Many thanks
