Saving Outlook folders and emails to an external location
Posted on 2016-08-04
Using Microsoft Outlook 2013, I'm dealing with a situation of having too many nested folders (well over 500 folders) that is causing performance issues. To attempt to remedy this, I'd like to be able to offload some of the (older) folders and their contents (because I need to retain them for possible access in the future) to a computer drive (C: drive, network drive, external drive or whatever). Is there a way to do this whereby if I needed to access any of the files or folders, it would be as simple as if I was opening the files in Outlook? I'd like to be able to access and view the saved folders and files as simply as with other files such as pdf's, Excel files, Word documents, etc. Thanks.
