Why can't I find / see any pst files eg. archive.pst? Should be under C:\Documents and Settings\lukar\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\archive.pst but I can't find the "Application Data" folder. Is it hidden and how could I access it?

Another q is: is it possible to have multiple archive folder pst files so that the only one doesn't get too big?

Thanks for help!

Hi, and welcom to Geeks to Go!

1. Application Data folder. It is a hidden folder. To see it, open My Computer, Tools menu, Folder Options, View tab. Check Show Hidden Files and Folders. Now you should be able to see the folder.

2. Multiple PST files. You can create as many PST files as you want. Outlook no longer has a 2GB size limit for PST files, but you will notice drag the larger the file gets.

If you have any other questions, please come back to see us.

Thanks LindaGail, I see the app data folder now.
Could you please explain how to create multiple pst files - not within archive.pst but parallel to it?
Thanks!

Thanks dsnette! I probably should have found this solution given some clicking, but it's much faster this way. So your help is really appreciated. Have a good day!
