how to consolidate multiple archive folders; delete all but one

Posted on 2008-11-12

Somehow, I ended up with two Archive Folders. I would like to consolidate into one Archive Folder (call it folder A) and delete the then-empty (Folder B). So, do I just go to each sub-folder in folder B and copy the contents into the corresponding folder in folder A, and then delete folder B? Are there any other considerations (so I don't mess up Outlook)?

    You are correct. Simply open both archive files in outlook and move the contents of the older archive file, to the newer one. Then close the old file and delete it. Outlook should not have any problems with that

    Keep in mind that PST-Files tend to corrupt if they grow large. Try to stay below 2GB

    When you say "Keep in mind that PST-Files tend to corrupt if they grow large. Try to stay below 2GB", I assume that both of my archive folders are in the same PST file already? How would I know if this is true?
