Outlook 2010 reorganise
In Win 7 I have Office 2010 and use Outlook as my prime email and have done so since many previous versions and computers. I keep/archive a great many messages. It is home use but I correspond a lot with people all over about family history research and would process about 2 dozen messages per day on average.
Just recovering from a HD crash, the restorers seem to have recovered my data but it is taking me a frustrating time to get Outlook back anywhere near the way I was comfortable with. And I find I have a number of files, data and archive, in Users\Me\Documents\Outlook Files and one in AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.
Also, since the rescue, the Archives are not displayed in the left-hand (Navigation?) Pane.
Firstly, where does Outlook 2010 store .pst files by default - which location gets best (or only) access from within Outlook?
Then, can I safely amalgamate/merge the various files? I was thinking, for possible safety, of creating a new file such as Outlook2 and copying the contents of the other files to it and making that the new default file. Can this be done? How, please? Then if that were possible and worked, the others could be deleted and Outlook2 renamed to just Outlook. Similarly I have an "archive" file with over 2,700MB and "archive1" file with 600MB. I don't know how this all came to be. Probably from previous upgrades. I do know that before the crash there were archived files I could not access via Outlook but could find them by doing a Search from the Start button.

Hi Bill 48,
It seems that your Outlook data has been corrupted as you said the file size gets reduced and even you are unable to access them. I suggest that go for an inbuilt scanpst.exe provided by Microsoft. It helps you in recovering the database.
And if you want to import the database from one file to another then visit: Import Outlook items from an Outlook Data File (.pst) - Outlook - Office.com
And for finding your archive file through Outlook go to the data file select the archive and Click on open folder button you can get the path were it is saved. I hope the information helps you
