My Outlook gives the well-known error message "The Exchange server has
detected that you are using an old copy of your OST file. Please
delete your OST file"
In the past I was able to fix this by searching for the *.ost file in
windows explorer and deleting it. However with my new computer I don't
seem to be able to do it. When I search for *.ost files on all local
drives it comes up with no results but outlook still gives the error.
I am running Windows 2000. This message started appearing after I used
Norton Ghost to revert to a previous state of the OS (it just restores
partition from an image file). Which makes sense because it now has
the old state of Outlook and the Exchange server does not like it. But
before I was always able to fix it by finding and deleting the file
but now it just does not seem to be there. Is it possible that the OST
file is marked hidden or system so that Explorer is not finding it?
