I adviced him to take a backup copy of the mails and then continue ghost. Though he suspects what to do if he faces any issues on outlook after ghost, i recommended him some tools to repair outlook if he faces such situation.

There are many outlook repair tools available in the net. please try any one of the following to recover your outlook.

or if you want to be precautious, then backup the datas from the outlook, then run ghost. if you run into issues then restore the datas that you have backed up.

Please be sure before you are trying.

Although there is an Exchange server in the picture, does the user also have any .PST files (this includes Archive files)? If so, how large are they? If they are huge, compress them.

Also, how large is his outcmd.dat file (should be in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook). If it is huge, close Outlook, rename the outcmd.dat file to outcmd.dat.old, and reopen Outlook.
