Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would go through the following links to help you find what you are looking for.

If you are still unable to find your .pst

Search for *.pst in the C: drive (or your hard drive location) using the Search Companion. Searching for items is different depending on the Operating System.

Let us know how this goes. Good luck.

************
If YOU MOVED the pst file and you still have it, move it back. Open Outlook, close the pst first, then close outlook and move the pst wherever you wish.

    Thanks for the help but these aren't what i was looking for. More description: In outlook after archiving, there is a archive folder that appears under Favorite folders. i moved the pst to several of these archives without closing the archive folder in this location. Now, when i open outlook and try to close the archive folder the error i mentioned above shows up. How do i fix the error, so that i can close these archive folders?

    Rightclick the archive folder in Outlook and select the Close button. Restart Outlook, it now doesn't want to open the moved or deleted archive.

    The Favorites are shortcuts. Is the Archive Folder still in the Main Folder List? If it is, right click in and select "Remove from Folder Favorites". To close the real Archive Folder, you can try moving the archive file back where it was but you may have to re-create your e-mail profile using the Mail option in the Control Panel.

    If you can move the pst back to the folder you moved it out of, then re-open outlook, right-click the archive folder you want to close and choose close folder. If for some reason you cannot move the pst back, then open outlook, go to file-data file management and remove the archive folder from the list there. Cloas and re-open outlook and you should be fine.
