Windows 7 PC's; SBS 2008 Server; Exchange 2007 on SBS
I like to put all the pst files in a location other than its default - for instance - client machines have two HDD - I put the pst file & most other data files on the 2nd HDD so that if primary goes out data is ensured.
Not realizing the affect - I attempted to colocate the ost file to the 'Outlook' folder where the client's real-time pst and archive pst files reside - I copied from one location to another - I did not move the originals. I then added the OST file the Outlook data file location...
This is the error client gets when activating Outlook: "File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file c:\users\username.domainname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\outlook.ost. Immediately Outlook shuts down.
After searching for methods to change the Outlook\Options\datafile entry with the ost file - and realizing I didn't know where to look for an option excluding launching Outlook - I uninstalled Office 07 and reinstalled. Launched Outlook - same error message. Same result.
Do I have to delete the client mailbox from within Exchange and rebuild the account? What did I actually do (what damage did I cause) and how in the world do I fix it?
