User is unable to open outlook. When he does the user receives the following error:
Cannot start MS Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook windows. The set of folders cannot be opened. The file C:\Users\users folder\AppData\Local\Micro
.ost has reached its maximum size. To reduce the amount of data in this file, select some items that you no longer need, and then permanentrly delete them by pressing SHIFT+DELETE. You could also consider switching to Unicode mode and using the new Offline Folder file (.ost) introduced with Outlook 2003 that proviedds greater capacity for storing items and folders.
This user uses outlook 2007 (was previously upgraded from 2003 (had the same issue with 2003)). He is on a Windows 7 machine as well. I have tried the following:
The MaxFileSize registry entry
The WarnFileSize registry entry
The MaxLargeFileSize registry entry
The WarnLargeFileSize registry entry
I renamed the OST file and open outlook, it will recreate itself and work for awhile (about a day) then revert to the same issue.
There are no limits on the exchange server for users and there OST sizes.
The user is not running out of space on his HD either.
User does have a large email file. User would like to not archive and or delete if possible.
