Changing Outlook IMAP directory from C: to D:

Have tried to edit registry with forcepath, didn't work.
Would really want to put my outlook imap gmail data in D, since I can't have in C anymore (disk is full, it's a SSD small drive for programs, not data).

I like outlook 2010 since it doesn't have bugs like 2013 and 2016 (updating with server and using a lot of bandwidth).

Anyone has a real solution for this directory issue ?

Did you moved your PST file after you've changed ForcePSTPath setting in registry ??/

You can also back up your PST / OST files for safety, then delete your email profile in Control Panel, Mail. Open Outlook and make a new account. Use the manual method, not wizard and point the email file to D:  When done, you can copy your PST / OST files to the new location overwriting the small new files. I assume you got no mail while doing this.
