Outlook.pst cannot be accessed... problem occurs at random intervals
Posted on 2008-06-10
Several times a day Outlook stops working. When I try to look in my Inbox folder I get the error message:
"Cannot display the folder. The file C:\Users\Alec\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst is in use and cannot be accessed. Close any application that is using this file, and then try again. You might need to restart your computer."
Send and receive also stops working.
The problem goes away on its own after several minutes but recurs a few hours later.
