Outlook. Relocate the archive file.
Properly moving the archive.pst file (or whichever name you specified as the archive file) consists out of 4 easy steps;
Disconnect the archive file
The quickest way to disconnect the Archive-file is to right click the root folder of your archive and choose “Close Archive”.
If you do not know the current location of your Archive file, then another way to do is is via;
Select your Archive file and click the button “Remove”. Don’t worry, you are only removing it from you Mail Profile, you are not actually deleting the archive file.
Move the pst-file
It is important to close Outlook first or you won’t be able to move the file. Once Outlook is closed, browse to the location of the archive file if you did not directly open the location in the previous step.
If your path contains “AppData” or “Local Settings” and you don’t see these folders, then you have Windows set to hide hidden files and folders (which is the default). You can then either configure windows to do show hidden files and folder or to simply type in the path in the Address Bar (do not include the file name itself).
Now copy the file to the location where you want it to be such as;
D:\<your name>\My Documents\Outlook
Once it is copied, you can either delete the original or rename it to .old until you’ve verified your new configuration is working.
