Outlook 2007 reminders

Hi,

I have a user who for some reason Outlook all of a sudden grabbed 516 files from the computer and keeps coming up with reminders for these files. Even if you dismiss them they keep coming back.

It's a very strange issue, as it's random files in the reminders, not appointments. The user has Outlook 2007 working with Google Apps Sync.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks

It's pulling in random documents, so it could be a .doc or .xls file, that it creates a random reminder for it.
recreate outlook profile might resolve this, but the best way is to delete all the unwanted appointments

The only issue with re-creating the outlook profile is that it will delete the stored Google Apps Sync data, so the user will have to re-sync with Google Apps, it's about 3GB of data in total.

They're not acutally appointments, they're just random documents that outlook has come up with.

Hi, mark_06.

Outlook doesn't do anything with documents in the file system, so I seriously doubt that this is an Outlook problem.  It seems far more likely that it's a problem with Google Apps Sync.
