Hi guys

I've got a client whos Internet Calendar Subscriptions for Google Calendars file gets massive in very short period of time. First time I set his Outlook 2007 up to share Internet Calendar Subscriptions with his colleagues about 8 months ago. After 3-4 months he rang me and said that his Outlook doesn't open properly and he needs to open it in Outlook Safe Mode and do Force close almost every single time. I found out that his .pst file for the Internet Calendar Subscriptions for Google Calendar was 19GB (nineteen). So I deleted that and we started over. Now, couple of months later it's 10GB+ again and he is experiencing the same issues as described already.
There is just 3 members hooked up to that Google calendar sharing option. Other 2 have no problems at all.
As said, it's Outlook 2007 and OS is Windows 7.

Thanks for your time.

    Accepted Solution

    I would close outlook
    Reopen using
    Start>Run>Outlook.exe /cleansharing

    This will remove all the RSS Feeds, Sharepoint LIsts, Internet Calendars, Published Calendars ect ect

    The setup the google calendar again

    Also If the otehr two users are setup the same and dont have the issue, whats special about this user?

    Is this user syncing to a mobile device?
    Is it possible the sync is causing duplicates and triplicates over time causing the increase in size....

    This user has the same settings as the other 2 so nothing special about him.
    The Outlook calendar is not showing up any duplicates or triplicates. Although I do need to double-check on that. Thanks for now
