How to Move an Outlook Offline Data File (*.ost)

By Diane Poremsky |

Moving the offline cache so its easier to back it up is generally pointless: it’s an offline copy of your Exchange mailbox and it can only be opened by the account that created it. If you try to use an old cache file, Outlook will complain that it doesn’t match the server mailbox. If the server fails and there is no server backup, the contents of the current, most up-to-date *.ost should be used to repopulate the server. In short, if you want a usable backup of your mailbox, export the contents to a *.pst file instead of including the *.ost in a backup file.

If you need to recover data from an orphaned ost file, I have a list of commercial recovery software listed at Convert an Offline File (.ost) to a Personal File (.pst)

With that disclaimer out of the way, if you do need to relocate the offline file, you can move it using the following steps.

If you are moving an .ost file, you need to create the ForceOSTPath registry value before adding the account to your profile. Continue reading

How to Move Outlook IMAP or EAS Data Files

By Diane Poremsky|

Applies to: Microsoft Outlook 2013, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007, Outlook 2003

That method is used to move *.pst files used by POP3 accounts, it won’t work with the IMAP protocol. (Actually, it’s not recommended that you use that method for any PST – you should move the PST then point the profile to the new location before opening Outlook.)

Use ForcePSTPath registry value to relocate Outlook 2013 IMAP and EAS .ost data files.

While I don’t recommend moving the IMAP *.pst unless your drive space is tight, you can move the IMAP *.pst using the following steps. You cannot reuse an IMAP data file with a different profile. Continue reading

From Wikipedia

Anti-copyright refers to the complete or partial opposition to prevalent copyright laws. Copyright is known as the owner’s right for copies to be only made by the owner or with his/her authorisation in form of a licence.

The classic argument for copyright is the view that granting developers temporarymonopolies over their works encourages further development and creativity by giving the developer a source of income; normally copyright is enforced within a framework of the Berne Convention, instituted by Victor Hugo and first enacted in 1886. A central anti-copyright argument is that copyright has never been of net benefit to society and instead serves to enrich a few at the expense of creativity. Some anti-copyright groups may question the logic of copyright on economic and cultural grounds.
