I have a user on the network that insists on keeping pst files and keeping them on the branch server so they are backed up. She has occasional issues with accessing these which is a known issue for this configuration. We are using an exchange server but she keeps mail longer than the server does. Is there an alternative that will keep her ability to store psts and have them on the server? Doesn't have to stay psts as long as the same solution is reached.

Hi, guitchicken.

She could keep the pst files on her computer and use Microsoft's Personal Folders Backup Addin (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=8b081f3a-b7d0-4b16-b8af-5a6322f4fd01&displaylang=en) to back them up each time Outlook closes.

If you are using an exchange server, it makes no sense using a local pst as well. What does make sense is to use the archive function in outlook to archive old data into an archive.pst. This file can be placed on a server's share.
