well i thought it was in t Program Files so I was searching all over. It
wasn't showing up in search because in XP, the default is to exclude
hidden files in search. Guess what this file registers as? you guessed it!
a hidden file.

google? what's google? url please

sorry, I had to borrow it. ;)

I actually changed my location of the PST file so that it is on my hard drive that isn't where Windows XP resides. That way whenever I reinstall Windows XP, I do not lose any of my mail :)

this guy can't be serious. this really is ridiculous.

You answer in the thread I started, asking the question of the subject?
and then go post a whole new thread asking the SAME EXACT THING?!

dude, if I could, i would ban you right now just out of pure stupidity.
Each time I give in and say, OK, I need to be nice you go and do
something like this.

UTTERLY RIDICULOUS. :bad-words: :flame:

i can't believe i'm about to ask this...

what version of win u got right now? did you try the search feature in
windows? they ALL have it. Try searching for *.pst and make sure
hidden files are viewable.

Actualyy let me ask this first -
Do you even have Outlook - not Outlook Express, OUTLOOK - installed? :?: :?: :?:

I'll give you my address, I could care less. You need to quit your crap on
this board or be banned. At the very least, your posts will be ignored
and we will never help you again.

That's your last warning dsantamassino12...last and final.
