I am on Windows 10, Version 1607, 64 bit OS.


As an attempt to boost my productivity, I installed an application called Calendly, which allows people to see my Outlook calendar and pick a time to arrange a call with me. It gave me problems when I first started because it was always sending a query to Outlook for calendar updates. I changed my settings to limit this, but I am still having problems.


Specific problems include not being able to send an e-mail after having composed it, inability to move from one Outlook folder to another, and problems opening Outlook. Currently, I am experiencing the latter of these. The other problems come with vague reasons, such as lack of access to files and require shut down and restart of Outlook with loss of any composed e-mails as a result. 


When I can't open Outlook at all, here is the message I get:



Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The file C:\Users\sclos\OneDrive\Documents\OutlookFiles\sclossick@mindspring.com.pst is in use and cannot be accessed. Close any application that is using this file, and then try again. You might need to restart your computer.

I have sent in inquiry to Calendly to see if they have a response.


Is there a way to actually see the .pst file to see what application is accessing it?


Any help would be appreciated.
