Windows 7: Sync outlook 2007 pst file in onedrive

Sync outlook 2007 pst file in onedrive


I have outlook 2007 installed on my win7 pro laptop and my desktop and I would like to setup the pst file in onedrive in order for it to be accessible on both the laptop and desktop. I created the pst file and moved it into the onedrive folder on the laptop and after some time the file appeared on the onedrive folder on the desktop and I could access the file from both machines. However, when I made a change on either machine and onedrive started to sync the file, the sync went on for days without completing. PST files get large very quickly which may be the reason why syncing is slow. I am sure I must be doing something wrong and don't understand how this works. I use onedrive with other applications with no problem so I think it might be something unique to pst files.

It appears that the whole pst file is synced when a change in made on either laptop or desktop. My internet is not very fast. If onedrive syncing is not possible, is there another way I can accomplish what I am trying to do, that is, to have the pst file accessible from either machine and changes synced on either machine?

Thanks in advance for any help.
