I've seen a few solutions on EE for this issue - a user's archive.pst folder has gotten so large it's causing issues. Here's what I think the easiest solution is & wanted to make sure I'm right before I did it.
All users access Outlook through an RDP session. The archive file for each user is on a shared network drive. Ex. U:\USER\Outlook\archive.pst
To make this simple, can I just rename the existing archive to archiveOLD.pst and then create a archiveNEW.pst file for moving forward. So, autoarchive in Outlook would then be directed to U:\USER\Outlook\archiveNEW.pst instead of the former archive.pst file, renamed as archiveOLD.pst?
