Manually Archiving Folders to your M Drive in Office 2003

You can manually transfer old items to your M drive to free up space in your email account. To archive each folder separately, follow these directions for each folder individually.

Go to File menu and click on Archive.

Select the Archive This Folder checkbox and then select the folder that you want saved.

Enter the age of the items that you want removed to the archive in the next box by clicking on the drop down menu and selecting today's date.

Under Archive file:, type in M:\ and the filename (example: archive.pst). Click OK to launch the archiving process.

The archiving message will appear in the lower right corner of Outlook window. The archiving may takes a few minutes.

Once this is finished,  you can find the folder(s) in the folder list under Archive Folders. You may need to close and then re-open Outlook in order for this folder to display.

If you have any problems or questions, please contact the User Support Desk.
