I have followed the instructions from both here: Moving Outlook 2010 PST files to a new location and here: Move an Outlook Data File (.pst) to different folder and I am experiencing a behavior that is frustrating: Outlook is recreating the PST file instead of popping up the error message as documented.
- close outlook
- Browse to location of PST files: (C:\Users\Patrick\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook)
- Move PST file to new location (D:\docs\Outlook)
- Restart Outlook
At this point, I am supposed to get an error message. I do not. Instead I noticed that there are now, new PST files at the original location (C:\Users\Patrick\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook) and that the old files are no longer used.
What am I doing wrong?
EDIT It's NOT an OST file. It is a PST file mapped to an IMAP account (if that matters).
