You COULD turn off caching. That way there will be no .OST file.

You will need to first close the outlook, open mail icon from Control panel, then email account settings, disable the cache mode, click ok and close all. Once again open the mail and go to Advanced settings, Click "Disable Offline Use" once it is done, browse option will work then you can create the OST on different drive.
