Hi,

In C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\:
I have 2 .pst files called Outlook1.pst and Outlook2.pst.

In Outlook 2007:
I have 2 "Personal Folders"

Question:  How can I tell which Personal Folder links to which .pst file  ?

go to file and then account settings then Data Files and then you would know the name and the linked location and file name

Right-click the Personal Folder file in Outlook and choose properties, then click the Advanced button and in the file path will be the name of the file that you have opened.

In Outlook 2007, go to File - click Data File Management

In there you'll see two Personal folders listed as Data file. Check in Filename Tab. And you'll see which personal folder located in which location.

I accepted Alan's solution because, even though Flora's solution does take me to the pst file locations, BOTH Personal Folders have the SAME name so you cannot determine which .pst file is linked to which personal folder.

In fact Flora suggest is also correct. You should open your eyes a bit bigger to see in "Filename " tab at the middle as I mentioned.

Hi bominthu.  Thanks for your answer.  However there is no "Account Settings" under "File".  This option exists under "Tools" in Outlook 2007.  This is in Outlook 2010.

There is no "Filename" tab either.  There is "Data Files".  When I opened that what I see is shown in the attached screen shot.  You will note that as I mentioned, I have two "Personal Folder" and no way to tell which points to which data file.  Hence I could not use this solution.  I did not set it up that way, my customer did and I have to live with that.

Thanks anyway.
