Hi
I upgraded my home computer 6 days ago, and it came with WIN8 installed, I loaded my copy of 2010 MS Office pack, and got my Outlook up and running fairly easily. This computer has 2 x Hard Drives, the C: being a 120GB SSD drive and the secondary drive - D: is a 2TB Hard drive. All of my MS Software is loaded onto my C: drive, I made the mistake of moving My Libraries, specifically My Documents which included the Outlook files from the C: to the D: and now my MS Outlook does not work. I have had my local internet provider - Telecom/Xtra Remote Access my computer, but they were unable to fix, and they suggested I contact MS. My Outlook Data files now show the following - D:\Documents\Outlook Files\[email protected]
and I believe that this is where the fault lies, and that it should be like this - C:\Douments\Outlook Files\[email protected]
How can I fix?
Would much appreciate any help you can give me with this.
Regards
Mike
