Is this normal?
We have a machine complaining that it's running out of disk space. When investigating the situation we found that we have a high number of PST files in the outlook folder on the local machine.
Any ideas why this is happening and how do i stop it? If I stop it will it cause problems?
Thank you in advance!
do you have anymore info, is this a curriculum or admin machine? is it soley used for one person or is it students? and should students or teachers need access to outlook on this machine?
if not then just go ahead and remoe the .PST files, maybe back them up if it seems suspicious?
Thanks for your reply!
The machine is an admin machine and is used by one person. We have now noticed that on a machine that is used by many teachers, this is doing the same thing of every user that logs on.
ok, sounds to me like a profile problem, do you have mandatory profiles? if so check that there are no pst files in there being copied accross.
as far as that i cant understand what the problem might be... :confused:
Thanks once again.
It seems like that the PST files are being copied to the local machine for the user to access their email.... but... when the user logs off the PST stays on the local machine.
ahh, i hate pst files.
pst files arent really designed to be transfered to and from server to clients. in all the admin offices i have worked in the staff member uses the same machine every day so i cant quite understand why they have to move the pst file every time they log off?
unless its a backup method?
