I noticed that are computers were set up with the archive file located on each user's C drive -- a problem if their hd ever crashes. I did the following, but it seems that after a couple of weeks, the archive setting returns to pointing toward their C drive again. Has anyone ever run into this? Could a group policy on the server do this? (Note: We use Outlook 2003 in Win XP and run a Win SBS 2003 server).
- Note where the archive file is (was in its standard location) and close it.
- Move it to the server.
- Change the settings in Outlook at Tools:Options:Other:AutoArchive under "Move old items to" to the location on the server (Browse and doubleclicked on the file to be most accurate).
- Click "Apply these settings to all folders now" and then Click OK.
- Open the file in its new location by going to File:Open:Outlook Data File.
Thanks for your help and suggestions.
