Due to numerous computer crashes over years as well as regularly back-up my Outlook folders on DVD's, I got stuck end of last year with all these back-ups, but an Outlook that did not work when I tried to import all this data, most of which will in any case be duplicates.I believe there is some or other 2 GB cap.

Outlook 2010, which I have, is working well, having started from scratch.

I would like to try to recover some of these old emails/contacts and delete all the duplicates.

Due to limited space on my PC's, I downloaded the 20GB pst and other files on my daughter's laptop. She has Windows 7 and Outlook 2007. I downloaded it into C: User\...\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst. All these emails are visible as far as I can see when I open Outlook on her laptop.

I have installed Accurate Outlook Duplicate Remover on her laptop to remove the duplicates, but it gives me the error message when I open the programme that it "cannot find the Outlook files"

So my questions-

  • Where should I store these Outlook files on her laptop, for AODR to find it?
  • Is there another way of deleting all these duplicates?

Kind regards

Albie

Office 2010 has a limit of 20Gig PST Files, so I would recommend using the most recent one and forget the rest.
