Windows 7: Outlook 2013 .OST file and I'm trying to move it...can it be done?

Outlook 2013 .OST file and I'm trying to move it...can it be done?

I'ce got Outlook 2013 installed and I want to move the .OST file. I access e-mails from several devices...desktop, laptop, phone & tablet. As a result, I need an IMAP e-mail account...I think.

So, I've set one up. Everything is going OK but...I can't get the .OST file moved. Th eost file is in $localappdata%\microsoft\outlook however, for backup purposes, I want it moved to another drive / folder. Should be simple, but I can't get it done...or perhaps it can't be done.

So, my question is simple...can the ost file be moved to another location? Or, am I misunderstanding what the file is actually for?
