Extremely large OPS files

Posted on 2007-10-03

I have an Exchange 2003 environment with ~500 Outlook 2003 clients. We have a Citrix farm and flex profiles in use and occasionally have OPS files that are getting corrupted. The size on all OPS files vary from a couple of K to nearly a gig! It appears they grow with our more tenured employees. Looking at specific files with the OPS viewer shows the larger file very similar in amount and type of content. The smaller sized OPS may indeed even contain more pages of text than the bloated one! Anyone know if they should be getting this huge? Should I just blow them away and have the user recreate or something I can do to trim these?

    We use Flexprofiles on our Citrix servers but don't have your problem, but I was researching another MS Office quirk and came across these:
    Don't know if they're related, but maybe these links will help. The growing OPS problem is a little farther down in the link from Citrix support where it talks about the "BackupProfile=NO" setting and not saving all of the Messaging Profile;action=display;threadid=834
