Windows 7: "! The file C:\Users\...\...\...\Outlook.pst cannot be found"

05 Feb 2014   #1

Win 7 Pro SP1 64bit
"! The file C:\Users\...\...\...\Outlook.pst cannot be found"

When I first installed Office 365 Home Premium, Outlook worked perfectly. Recently, whenever I start Outlook 2013, an error message requesting an Outlook data file appears.

"! The file C:\Users\John\Documents\Outlook Files\Outlook.pst cannot be found."

After I cancel two successive screens dismissing the request, the program works fine.

I'm sure I caused this problem inadvertently while learning to use this app.

Thanks for your suggestions
