Outlook 2003 error message about an old copy of the .OST file

    I regularly get the following error:

    Outlook 2003 is using an old copy of your offline folder file (.ost). Exit
    outlook, delete the .ost file, and restart Outlook. A new file will be
    automatically created the next time you initiate a send/receive.

    Outlook 2003 with SP2 is installed on a laptop (Win XP SP2) and configured
    for Cached Exchange mode.

    Whenever I delete the existing OST file (located in C:\Documents and
    Settings\username) and point Outlook to the location that I want the new OST
    file to be created, it works for approx 1 week.

    it then returns the same error message captioned above

    Can anyone lend assistance to resolving this isssue?
