Are you able to view your Outlook Data file within Microsoft Outlook application?
The outlook data file's default location is drive:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook; e.g., C:\Users\alok\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook. If a custom location was select for the .pst files, you can access the location of the .pst files: click on File>> Account Settings>> click Account Settings>> click 'Data Files' tab which will show you the location of all the data files related to Outlook. Refer to these images: File>> Account Settings,Data Files Tab
If you have any other issues related to outlook, I will be glad to help.
Please reply if you have any further questions.
Thanks and Regards,
I have windows 7 pro version installed on my desktop, 500 GB seagate 7200 rpm HDD, intel i5 4 GB RAM. This is not required, but I am posting the hardware details. My query is that previously I used to be able to access the hidden files on my C drive, now I am not able to access them. I need to access the data files of microsoft outlook ( I have microsoft outlook 2010) installed, so that I could run synch pst for outlook. I have long back put a check mark in the folder options to allow me to see the hidden system files, but yet i am not able to access the. My user account is an administrative account. However these files are accessible by goodsync software which synchronises these files to another drive on the same HDD. I wonder if goodsync have locked these folders. I don't think so because I was able to access them previously. I also created the default administrative account in windows if that works, and logging in under that account also did not help.
Could you please help me. I am not interested and formatting my HDD and reloading windows. Will waste 1 week of my time and I can't manage to take out that much time from my professional duties.
With warm regards,
Dr Alok Modi MD
