November 2, 2016 Leave a comment

By default, Microsoft Outlook saves the email files in \User\[UserName]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

If you want to change it to a different folder,

  1. Open registry editor
  2. Goto HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\xx.0\Outlook
  3. Add a new string value called ForceOSTPath and set the value to the folder path where the data files should be stored
