Office 2013 | Changing *.OST Location | Regedit


Warning: WP_Syntax::substituteToken(): Argument #1 ($match) must be passed by reference, value given in /homepages/40/d806441738/htdocs/clickandbuilds/edwardsd/work/wp-content/plugins/wp-syntax/wp-syntax.php on line 383

This needs a registry update, customize the string value with your OST path.

This is for Office 2013, but can be used with Office 2007/2003 by changing the “15.0” version option.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\outlook]
"ForceOSTPath"=string:D:\My Documents\Outlook

Once the registry update has been completed, create a new profile (which defaults to this location) and move the old .ost to this directory (same file-name and overwrite the existing .ost)
