There wasn't an answer to this question when first asked so I am going to ask it again.
This time there was a Windows server 2008 setup to redirected the desktop. The error message shows on a Windows 7 computer. The problem is complicated that the file in question is Outlook PST file which can not be redirected. I do not need the file and would like to know how to get rid of the file.

Just move the Outlook Files to another location, open Outlook, Extras -> Options, Tab Email Options. Perhabs you can define it using the GPO Extensions from M$.

Can you please explain this or give a link to your question before? I've never seen an outlook without PST File.

When Windows Server 2008 is set up to do the file redirection, when the person logs off, a sync cycle occurs. If the file is Outlook pst or access mdb file then one will get a warning that these types of files can not be moved to the server. I always like cleaning warnings so I move the files in question.

I did not say there was no pst file. To get around the sync problem, I have been using the pfbackup to create a backup file. It is the pst backup file I am talking about. I was moving from a XP computer peer to peer to Domain Windows 7 computer. I forgot about the redirection and put the backup file on the desktop and got in trouble. Both the pst and nk2 files have been moved over. I just looking to clear the file and the error.

I do not see an Extra as a menu selection in Outlook 2007.

I am having difficulty doing the steps in the link you provided. Folder Options in Windows 7 does not have a Offline Files tab as in Windows XP.

The document you select does say for Windows XP. I am not ready to apply Windows XP registry changes to Windows 7.

I did find a second reference that did use the same steps as in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/230738 for Windows 7
http://clintboessen.blogspot.com/2010/01/error-0x800710fe.html

However, neither registry option or the removal of the End Point Protection allowed the PST file to be delete. Still get the same message.
sorry, i only have a german Version installed, perhabs you can find the setting when seeing a screenshot.

Does the pst file exist or just a reference to it? if so, where is it located?

It appears the English version is different from German (please substitute the correct term) version.

Yes, I had discovered that the redirection even though it would not copy the file did put a reference to it on another computer. When I tried to delete that reference it gave me a file is not available. The actual file was on another computer. The solution was to delete the file on the other computer.  

I can not give points myself. Your original answer reference was only partially right for a Windows 7 computer. However, I will give you the points.

Hi techcodr, generally rebuilding the cache would have eliminated the reference to the file on the
server 2008 as the server doesn't host pst. Have the file in another location, well, anything is possible
when it comes to computing. LOL
Not having hands on access is always a drawback but if I can jog someone's memory direction, then
it's a good day.   Glad you've resolved the problem and thanks for the feedback. Hopefully will help
someone else in the future.
Cheers

I find that the error message itself can have me going down the wrong path. I just got done with "Printer Properties cannot be displayed. The print spooler service is not running". The problem has nothing to do with the printer. The problem was the computer was not on the network. That one had me off on the wrong path also.  Yes, I do need memory direction jogs in cases like this one and the print spooler service.  Thanks for the input. However, now that I know the refresh the cache solution, I expect I will never have to use it :)
