1 Auto Archiving Folders in Outlook XP Your Outlook account on the Exchange server is allotted 50 megabytes of storage space on the server. Items in the Inbox, Calendar, Sent Items, Deleted Items, and other folders impact the amount of space your account utilizes on the server. s with file attachments consume more space, depending on the size of the attached file. Proper care of managing space utilization on the Exchange server should be taken by all Outlook users to keep individual service from being interrupted. Over time the Inbox and other folders will accumulate many items. Unwanted items can be deleted to conserve space on the server. Remember the Deleted Items folder must also be emptied regularly. It s also recommended that items no longer needed in the Sent Items folder be deleted as well. However, other items in the Inbox, Sent Items, Calendar, and other folders may need to be kept for future reference. To keep your Inbox and other folders manageable and to conserve storage space on the Exchange server, you need another place to store (archive) the old important items that may not be frequently used. Further, you need a way to automatically move those old items to the archive location and to discard outdated items. The Auto Archive feature in Outlook takes care of these processes for you. Auto Archive enables you to automatically transfer old items from the Inbox or other folders to a storage file on the hard drive of the computer being used. Archived items will only be accessible from that computer. Old items are those that reach the archiving age you specify. Expired items are mail and meeting items whose content is no longer valid after reaching a certain date, like an appointment six months ago that still appears on your calendar. With Auto Archive you can permanently delete expired items, and delete or archive old items to an archive file. Auto Archive is a two step process. First Auto Archive must be turned on. The second step is to set the Auto Archive properties for each folder that you want archived. Those running Office 2003 will have the ability to setup default archive settings, but may need to turn on archiving on each folder. These directions assume you are logged into your Exchange account using the Microsoft Outlook XP program on your office computer. The Auto Archive feature is also available in Outlook 2000 and To turn on Auto Archive: 1. From the menu bar, select Tools, Options; 2. Click on the Other tab; 3. Click on the Auto Archive button; Auto Archiving Folders in Outlook XP.doc Page 1 of 5 Staff Education, UK Hosp. May 04

5 You will be able to access your archived folders and their contents from the Folder List view in Outlook. If the Folder List view is not open, from the menu bar, select View, Folder List. The archived folders will be listed in the Folder List view under the category of Archive Folders as illustrated below. Access items in an archived folder as you would access items in any other folder. Remember archived folders and their contents reside on the hard drive of the computer where archiving was setup in Outlook. The size of archived folders can impact system performance of your PC. If the.pst file becomes too large (exceeds 2 GB) it could lockup your system. It is recommended you create new file names for the archived file (see page 3) periodically depending on how much data is being archived. For example, you may want to create archived files name for each year to make it easier to retrieve if needed and manage the size of the.pst file. Further, if you are storing critical information in archived files, you will want to backup those files regularly. Since archived files are stored on the C drive of your system, they should be backed up to a network drive or removable media (cd or dvd) for safe keeping.
