Are you just copying the pst file or exporting and importing?

Please try to export from your computer and import into your co-worker's computer.

All our pst are stored on a server, I add that pst via File-> Data File Management, then I removeed it.

This is because the personal file is attached to your profile and cannot be used by other users.

You can export the content of your pst file to a new file and then import it to your co-workers computer.

PS: When you added the pst file to your co-workers computer, did you had your Outlook open on your computer? Can you try to remove it from your computer, close your Outlook, and add the pst file to your co-workers computer only then to see if you get the message?
