Phantom Personal Folder cannot be removed "<0w#25> "

I had a user who had corrupted Outlook and had three Contacts and duplicate Personal Folder (that cannot be opened). I have resolved the triplicate Contacts and removed the duplicate Personal Folder.

Inadvertently I created a no-named Personal Folder ("" displayed as the personal folder name) and it cannot be removed, you get the error message that you are removing personal folder "<0w#25>...."

The user has more than 20 accounts so I rather try other approaches than to create a new profile.

Any solutions?

Thanks
Joo

Try removing it in safe mode (Outlook)

Go to Start
Run
type

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /safe

Your path to Outlook.exe may be a little different.
