Hey guys,

I am trying to move couple of 2G outlook archived folders from a desktop to my laptop. Every time I try to copy or move the folders, I get error messages and it won’t let me move them. What can I do?

Thanks for the help

What are the error messages?

Of course, you should make sure you have Outlook closed when you do it, so we know that the files aren't in use.

Also, I hope you don't always push that 2GB limit...

It is. I have created a couple of them since Microsoft limit the size of the pst files to 2G. I can't copy them, move them or even dump them to dvd.

Thanks for the help,

From the Windows Explorer, if you can't copy the file, perhaps it has gotten corrupted. Not the first time it happens when PST files start gettting that large.

What is the error message when you try and copy the files.

Can you copy them to the same computer without an error.

You might try running a chkdsk.

Also,MS has a tool which might help as well with corrupted large PST files.

Looks like this problem has been eliminated with Outlook2003.

Thanks Bob, the file is not corrupt since I can open them in my current desktop. I can copy to the same machine. the error message is Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

Again, thanks for your help

Is the problem just when you try and copy the files from one computer to another over a network?

What are the exact steps and what is the exact error message.
