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
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?
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

The pages in one of the our publishing site are around 1500. So it?s showing effect on search crawling index and sometimes throwing an error like System out of memory (usually in full crawl). Our ram size is 4 gb for index server. Is there any method for archive the pages in page document library. And the important thing is the data must be handy, so the archival process should accommodate ability to retrieve the archived content quickly. pls suggest me.
Thanks in Advance

Consuming WebServices...deleting empty folders after archive
IS there a way to delete folders which are left empty after you perform an
archive? I have approx 300 or so folders that are empty since my archive
application completed but they still show up and there seems to be no way
except one at a time to delete them. There should be a method to state if
folder size = 0 then delete folder.
...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

I am new to data validation in Excel and would like to seek your advice on

I have tried to choose Decimal with min 6 & max 6 but doesn't work. Then I
use "Whole Number with min 6 & max 6" but also doesn't work. What

2) End users don't like to enter "Today's Date" by themselves. I try to use
the formula "=Today()". However, I believe the date in that cell will

can be burned off to a dvd or cd for filing..
Any thoughts or recommendations?
Use Auto-archiving feature in Outlook to do this. You could set it up so it

...Archive not archiving
Help please. I am trying to archive email folders.
Archive runs, creates an archive folder (and .pst file)
but does nothing else. i.e no data is moved to the
Archive folders. This is not a case of selected date - a
lot of this info is 2 years old. No matter what date I
select nothing is moved. Same if i try to archive
calendar or other folders. I see others have had this
problem - is there a solution or is this an outlook
problem. Any help appreciated. Thanks

I'm trying to open up those "archive.psd" and can't open them. The only

Can you tell me how to open up a file called "archive.psd"?

I need to archive a mailbox store with the execption of a couple of

Per-store only as far as I know. You'd have to move the mailboxes you want
to exclude to a different store.

I have my sent items set to auto archive for mails older than 6
months. Today I want to archive the remaining files in sent items
(less than 6 months old). How do I make sure that I end up with 1
merged file, containing the auto-archived and the newer items? If I
run archive on the sent items by selecting the auto-archive file I am
afraid that it may destroy the old items (I don't want to speculate if
MS thought about this or not).
If you manually archive the Sent Items folder they should end up in the
archive PST along with the other items.

I set a specific date but when I look back into my Inbox

Check the Modified date on the items that aren't being archived as you think
they should. That's the date Outlook uses to determine whether or not an
item is ready to be AutoArchived, and a simple action such as moving the
item to another folder can change the Modified date. More information and a
list of actions that change the Modified date can be found here:

Do archived folders/files in Outlook 2007 use the same ammount of space as
the original Outlook files? If so, what is the advantage of archiving?
The Archive option moves data, based on an aged date, which you can ammend
in archive settings, from your current data file to an archive data file.
As I recollect the default Archive setting is for 'older than 6 months'
Your current data file will be reduced in size as the data is no longer help
in that data file. It might also make your data more managable from a user
point of view.

as KVS's Archiving product.

I've got 2 PC's, a laptop and a desktop, with the 2 Outlook set to a same

it with archiving every 2 weeks. The problem is the following : the outlook
on the laptop cannot find the archive file and, when the autoarchive is
launching, I obtain an error message (outlook cannot find the archive file
locally). I tried to put the archive file on a shared location, but the file
is locked by the first outlook that uses it.
So, is there a simple way to share an archive file between 2 PCs ?
