I want to have my data file in a differnt location than the default Outlook location.

I have done what Mircosoft support suggested but didn't work.

I am using Outlook 2013, IMAP email account, Gmail, Windows 7 SP1.

I did change the "ForceOSTPath" to have my location. I did create a new profile. But still the .ost data file was created in the Outlook default location.

Here are some print screens of what i did and described above

Any suggestion

Thanks in advance

Diane,

It worked :))))

I had given up on fixing this issue and I was using mklink to trick Outlook into saving into different location, but now it is fixed permanently.

You are great!!

Thanks a Lot
