Win XP Pro SP3
I downloaded a data file which I knew was a picture. Copied it and changed
the copied file extension to jpg so that I could see it.
I now cannot delete the original file. The properties of which say :
Type of file: File
Size : zero bytes
The error says "cannot read from the source file or disk"
The filename ends in a dot which seems to be significant, why is this and
how can I get it off my desktop.
Google did not reveal anything specific. I actually struggled to form a
sensible question !
"joe" <email@example.com&...how to aviod outlook pst file created locally? #4
I am using postfix as MTA and storing pst file on server. But everytime
there is a network problem (ie. disconnect), outlook will create a new
local pst file(coz it can't find the network path to the pst file).
Because of that i had to manually go to reconfigure the default
delivery to the correct path (after network back on line).
I just want to know if there is a way to aviod outlook to not create a
pst file while user still able to open outlook? Or is there a way to
allow outlook automatically look for the pst on network (when LAN

Any thoughts on why this is happening and how to correct it?

I'm so confused after reading everything about .pst files and backing them

I have Office 2000 on my computer and the Outlook
application ahs been damaged when a virus invaded my

portion of Office which would be very helpful to me. As
an alternate, I have been using Netscape.
The Office SW was loaded on my computer by my previous
employer. When I left that company, I requested that I be
given my computer and the related SW. I have a signed
note from the CEO transferring all the hardware and SW to
me. However, I do not have the CD to reload the Office SW

...Duplicate Files Created
Have a user who is working on a spreadsheet.
When she saves her changes, and exits out of the spreadsheet, it creates a
duplicate file. It is an unassociated file, but it does open with Excel.
Are you sure it's an exact duplicate???
When excel saves the file, it saves it as a temporary file with a funny name (8
If the save is successful, xl will delete the original (or rename it to its
backup name (like "backup of book1.xlk)) and if that's successful, xl will
rename the funny named file to the original's name.
Common things that get blame...*.srs file causes "The operation failed. An object could not be found" error message when you click Send and Receive in Outlook <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I found that when ever a new profile is created in outlook a new *.srs (send receive settings)file exists. The *.srs file contains hard coded paths to the local cached pst files in documents and settings \blah\blah.
Answer: Close outlook, simply delete all the *srs files from %userprofile%\application data\Microsoft\Outlook.
EG C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.srs
When outlook is re-opened it will create a new *.srs file (* = the name of your profile in outlook)

This message was originally posted on 1/26/04, but received no response.
I'm running Outlook 2003 (11.5608.5703) under WinXP SP1. My Outlook.pst
file is a local "Personal Folders File (97-2002)," 127 MB after a compress.
The Office 2003 installation was an upgrade from Office 2000. Shortly after
installation, I ran the Inbox Repair Tool, more or less out of curiosity.
It found and repaired errors. I ran it again a few days later, and again it
found errors. In fact, almost every time I run it, it finds errors.

My current is about 10 meg. I suggest you may want to archive some of
the older data as Money does slow down with larger files.
My file is about 50Mb. I have not found a compelling reason to archive.

I am having trouble deleting things from Outlook 2000. If I look at my Outlook.pst
file, the size is 1,329,856 kb (pretty big!?). If I move some sent items
to a folder on another drive - say I move 40 megs of files, check the Sent
Items folder and confirm that they are gone, check Deleted Items and make
sure that they are not there. Log out of Outlook and back in and look at
my outlook.pst size, it does not change - still 1,329,856 kb! It continues
to grow with every email that I send and receive. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for your help.

I have been using Money, various versions, for several
years and recently began to have some problems getting my
transaction histories online. In the past I went to my
bank site and saved a ofc file for each of my accounts
and Money would immediately import it into the proper
account. While using Money 99 it began that I would try
to save the file and a window would flash on the screen,
as it did in the past, but nothing was imported. I have
recently upgraded to Money 2004 and hoped that the
problem was that my program was outdated, but, of course
I was wrong.

Is there anyway in the PST file to have auto archiving turned off
completely? Even better if I could disable it.
Also the variable "ModifyDefaultProfileIfPresent=FALSE", if I change that to
TRUE, will this update the default profile, rather than delete the old one
and recreate it? I.E. turning cached mode on (Not all clients have the
cached mode part of the PST) and turn off auto archiving (If I can do that)
