31 Appendix B: Archive Your Outlook mailbox grows as items are created in the same way that papers pile up on your desk. In the paper-based world, you can occasionally shuffle through all your documents and put in storage those that are important but not frequently used. Documents that are less important, such as newspapers and magazines, you discard based on their age. In Outlook, you can manually transfer old items to a storage file by clicking Archive on the File menu, or you can have old items automatically transferred by using AutoArchive. Items are considered old when they reach the age you specify. With AutoArchive, you can either delete or move old items. Outlook can archive all items and files that are stored in a mail folder. AutoArchive AutoArchive is a two-step process. First, you turn on AutoArchive on the AutoArchive tab in the Options dialog box under the Tools menu. Second, you set the AutoArchive properties for each folder that you want archived. What and when items are AutoArchived is determined at the folder level. You can automatically archive individual folders, groups of folders, or all Outlook folders. When you start Outlook, AutoArchive properties of each folder are checked by date, and old items are moved to your archive file. By default your archive file is stored at C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\archive.pst and is a personal folder file. Items in the Deleted Items folder are deleted. Note: The archive folder is not created until the first time Outlook successfully archives items. Note: At install several folders have AutoArchive turned on. These folders and their default aging periods are Calendar (6 months), Tasks (6 months), Journal (6 months), Sent Items (2 months), and Deleted Items (2 months). Inbox, Notes, and Contacts do not have AutoArchive activated automatically. When you archive, your existing folder structure is maintained in your new archive file. If there is a folder above what you choose to archive, that folder is created in the archive file. However, any additional items within the upper folder are not archived in the archive file. In this way, an identical folder structure exists between the archive file and your mailbox. Change General AutoArchive Options Follow these steps to change the general AutoArchive options for all folders in Outlook : 1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Other tab. Click the AutoArchive button. 2. Note the AutoArchive every X days check box. This determines how often AutoArchive tries to archive your items. 3. If you want to store your archived items in a location other than the default location, type the path and file name for the location you want items archived in the Default archive file box. 4. Click OK twice to accept the AutoArchive changes. The next time Outlook successfully archives items, Outlook uses the archive file to hold any archived items. 30
32 Change Folder AutoArchive Options Follow these steps to set when items will be archived per folder: 1. Right-click the folder on which you want to set the AutoArchive preferences, and click Properties. 2. Click the AutoArchive tab, set your archive options, and click OK. The new AutoArchive options work with the specified folder. Retrieving Archived Items Since the archive file is a file with a.pst extension, you can view archived items by opening the file. Follow these steps: Retrieve Archived Items 1. Click File, Open, and then Outlook Data File. 2. In the File Name box, type the location of your archive 3. file, and click OK. A new Outlook window appears. 4. In the Folder List, open Archive Folders to access your archived items Note: The default location is normally C:\My Documents\Archive.pst 31
