In process of searching thru files on my PC I found two archive.pst files :
 1- archive.pst       1.2 GB (Todays file date)
 2- archive.pst.2    1.5 GB (older file date)

Is it safe to delete the archive.pst.2 file?

Barcode Printer #2
Can anyone recommend a good barcode printer? We are using Cognitive Advantage right now, but we are having alignment issues with it.

move to archived folders works, archiving to same archived folders does not work
We are using Outlook 2000 with Exchange 2000. Most of our users work on Terminal Server. Their pst-files are stored on a directory on the file and print server. Some of these users can move mails from their mailbox to their archived folders, but cannot archive to it. They get the message that the pst file cannot be opened. However at that moment they can still browse in their archived folders, move mail to it and so on. For one user I created a new pst file, but the problem staid the same. Does anyone have experience with this? ...

The location of the .pst-file!?!
Hi, I have noticed that Outlook's .pst-file by default is located in the 'Local Settings' part of the profile. What is the idea here? We are using roaming profiles partially because we can use a central backup system on all our users' profiles, but since this part of the profile isn't copied down to the server, there will be no backup of the .pst-file :-( I find it kind of risky to not have this file backuped...

Rollup 2 Won't Install.
All I am trying to do is link up my Xbox 360 with my Laptop to use the Media Centre that I have installed on my computer. I learned that I needed to Install a “Extender” Update to my Media Centre Software, in order for my computer to see my Xbox and visa versa. This update failed to install and I was told to Uninstall and then Reinstall a previous “Rollup 2” Update as this was preventing the “Extenderer” Update.

Hi, I'm trying to archive some calendar items and have found the archive settings for the folder. When I run the archive process the items are not moved from the calendar and the folder size is not reduced. I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me how to set this up so that items prior to a point in time can be moved off so that the size of my calendar folder doesn't reach the size limit of my over zealous exchange administrator.

Archival Data -- Managing over Time
I am developing a set of data that I will do some research on, and others as well. My plan is to keep the source data in one workbook in a very simple format, and not do any calculations or charts in that workbook. I'll do my charts in other workbooks, and will send the source data workbook to others when they request. The idea is to reduce corruption and accidental modifications to the source data over time. Is this a good plan? Any other comments about how to protect the accuracy and stability of the source data over time? I understand I can essentially make the source file read...

Fonts #2
This sounds really basic, but for the life of me, I cannot get all the fonts in Outlook the same. Nor can I copy a folder's properties to another folder.

I also tried to change the text size within each message, but the size didn't change when I selected "largest". Can anyone help? ...

Exadmin #2
I'm trying to figure out a public folder publishing problem but came across this. In the web that has the exadmin virtual directory it points it to "\\.\BackOfficeStorage". When I double click on the directory, it does take me to the a folder that within seams to have the public folders listed. What is "\\.\BackOfficeStorage"? I believe it was first introduced in Exchange 2000 and is referred to as Exchange IFS (Installable File System). In Exchange 2000, it was also mapped as the M: drive, but that has been removed in Exchange 2003. From a MS KB article: T...

Sales tax changes #2

The majority of our sales are cash and carry so the sales tax rate is setup in Store Manager on a per item basis. I didn't think changing to a per customer basis made sense for my situation.
