View Full Version : Outlook 97 .pst file

I know this is old software but it contains all my contact details. How can I get Outlook to use a changed location of the Outlook.pst file from C:\Windows to my portable hard drive E:\ ?

If I can learn how to get Outlook to use the E drive this would allow both my computers to access the data when the E drive is connected.

Double-click on the .pst file in it's new location and it should open with Outlook (and remember the location)

From Outlook menu .. File > Open > outlook data file> browse to the pst file.

Thanks, Decibel, that did not work but started me on the track.
Thanks, Ronyville, that is nearly right.
I shifted the .pst file. Then opened Outlook and it said I had to browse for the file. Did that and it looks good.
Next test is when the portable drive is connected to my laptop.
