Where is the .ost file ? Outlook 2003

I want to use the inbox repair tool. I did find the scanost and scanpst
files in the "1033" folder on my HDD.

I wanted to use the scanpst file to scan .ost as you can scan either file,
but when I searched for the location --- ending in microsoft\outlook ----
there wa no .ost file.

I also scanned my HDD for .ost could not find that extension. And I do run
in cached mode. I did use the scanost, but also wanted to use the scanpst
tool drill to the location of the .ost file, change the file extension and
run.

Thanks,
Bob

Did you check this directory?

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook

That is where I see my .ost file. <username> is your login name by the way.

Are you using an Exchange account and are you running Outlook in Cached
Exchange mode? Are you using Outlook with the Outlook Connector and using a
Hotmail or Live account? If so, you'll have an OST. Otherwise, you won't.
