Hi Experts

We are having an odd issue on a PC in our network.
The machine is deciding to rebuild the users profile very regularly, as if there has been an error with the profile.
The users mailbox is 4.262GB.

Anyone have any ideas why this is occuring?

Is it the Outlook profile you are talking about or is it the windows profile?

It is the Outlook profile specifically.

one thing that will cause this is if windows is turned off (or crashes) without closing outlook.  Do you know if that has been happening ?

Try running the pst repair util :

I noticed that Word was still running in the background and we have been making sure it has closed properly, as well as Outlook.exe before the machine is shut down. Lately though, even confirmed both executables are not running has not done the trick, the problem is recurring...

Some trust been broken between your Outlook to Exchange server. I am sure you have recreate Outlook profile without success so I would say take a step further to rejoin the PC to domain.

By the way, rejoining PC would approx take you 10-15 minutes. May be worth looking into while you are waiting for potential solution.

Hi

The profile successfully rebuilds completely, the user actually uses his mailbox for days and then after a reboot, it asks to rebuild again.
I will rejoin the PC to the domain as soon as possible and get back to you with the results.
