Outlook 2002 backup question...please help!
I am having a problem with windows which may require me to reformat. I
cannot get into outlook (2002) via windows, but I can access files from dos.
Can someone please tell me where the data files for outlook 2002 are stored,
and which ones I'd need to copy?
Thanks in advance for any help.
See if this info helps:

How did you create this PST file? Was it ever on a CD? If so, remove its

...How do I move current faulty pst to backup and set up a new pst?
Yesterday I had my laptop turn itself off, probably because of overheating.
When I started it again Outlook can read but not write to the outlook.pst
file. I've tried to run scanpst.exe but it freezes everything but the mouse
about 6% in to the first step scan and I have to cold boot the laptop. I've
tried copying outlook.pst to a different folder, a usb memory stick and via
LAN to another pc but no luck, the copy locks up and never finishes. I have
also run chkdsk several times and it recovered some misallocated sectors so
something did go wrong with the file system.

I have attempted to find the answer to this question by searching this

Until recently I was running Outlook 2003 with a single pst file.

the storage of personal and work emails, I decided to create 2
additional pst files ('personal' and 'work'). I did just that,
following which I moved the relevant folders from within my Inbox
structure to the two personal folders.

So, I seem to be having an issue where Outlook performance
is suffering with the CRM loaded up. It continually locks
up and I have to Ctr-Alt-Del to close it and then reopen.
And when I have an email with an attachment, it can take
as long as a minute to get the email to open, appearing to

...why outlook1.pst and outlook.pst?
A friend's PC using Outlook 2003 has 2 .pst files - Outlook.pst and
Outlook1.pst in Documents and Settings\<his name>\Local
One is about 1/10 the size of the other and one starts with upper case
letter O and the other with lower case letter o. I cannot remember
which way round.
Why are there 2 .pst files?
Are both constantly updated? Maybe one is his archive PST file where old
data gets moved during the AutoArchive process. If not maybe he created one
by accident and it's just sitting there unused.
