OK. Got it all flying now. How do I tell which Outlook file I am currently using, and can I delete all the others to keep another problem from arising in the future. I had downloaded Office 2010 beta for about a wekk, and that could be where the problem started. I have uninstalled it now, and gone back to outlook 2007, but I want to clean up all I can, but leave what I need to. Help please and then I will leave everyone alone.
Thanks,
Bill

Billberry don't worry about taking up our time. The members of SevenForums are on here to help because they want to, not because they have to be here.

Open Outlook, go to Tools, click on account settings. Under name, highlight the account you use.

Click on "data files". The files listed under "Filename" are the ones you need and use. Make a note which they are and the rest you can safely delete from C:\Documents and Settings\*user name*\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

Note: Just the ones that I marked in my previous post. Don't delete any of the files that are not part of that group of 4.

That was simple. There was only one file listed under each place. Nothing else. What about al those other files I saw in the attachment I sent.

You should leave those alone. They are required for Outlook to run correctly plus they are very small files, only a MB or two,

PS.Unless you still require access to your hidden files and folders, reverse the process outlined in post #10.

Send a PM to a Mod. I think you can only mark it solved within a certain timeframe.

Can I delete the big file?

Attached is a screen shot of my outllok file folders. The one I use now is Outlook1. As you can see, one of the other folders has1,770,000 kb in it. Can I dump it. It is probably the one I had beore I emtied most of my folders this morning. I'm just try to clean up my hard drive, and have less confusion with Oulook going forward.
Thanks,
Bill

If the only file you now use is Outlook1 Then yes you can.

Bare in mind that file may have emails that you have saved and may need to access at some stage. Why not copy it to a DVD/CD or a flash drive just in case.
