Outlook 2007 / Exchange - OST-file

A collegue of mine works on a laptop with Vista and Outlook 2007 installed on it. The Outlook is connected to an Exchange 2007-server.
I've been reading some things about the filesize of OST-files. My collegue's OST is app. 4Gb great.
Towards the end of a workday he gets the following message in Dutch): Kan het bestand voor offlinemappen niet configureren (in English??): Cannot configure the file for offline folders.

I've already tried the ScanOST-tool for checking on errors and the compress-tool but both tools didn't help me any further.
