How do I change the default location of the cache file in Outlook 2007/2010? Primary reason that our laptop users don't have space for the OST file on the C drive, however, have a D drive partition with plenty of space.

The only way that you can change the default location is to use Group Policy.
However that will apply to all users unless you setup the policy very carefully.

Why not just expand the size of the C drive in to the D partition? That would be much easier and less likely to cause headaches in the future.

Technically I mispoke. The D drive is a physically separate drive.
