    You should be able to check the options in outlook for the where the data file is located, usually c:\docs&settings\user\appData\ms\outlook.... then copy and paste to another folder, but remember to go back to outlook and change the path.

    Not sure if this actually works? Why do you want to change the location, if it is for backup purposes, then you may be better off simply exporting the file.

    I do have two partitions and want the data on a seperate one. Where do you set this in Outlook

    Check out instruction snippet below:

    Close down Outlook.
    Open My Computer and select Folder Options from the Tools menu
    Select the View tab and make sure Show hidden files and folders is selected. Click OK
    Navigate to c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\ Copy the files "outlook.pst" and "archive.pst" from there to your H: (My Documents) folder. Note: There may be similarly-named files which also contain a number. Copy these as well.
    Right-click on the Outlook icon on the desktop and select properties
    Click on the Data Files button
    For each entry on the list corresponding to the copied files, select it and click on Settings
    Outlook will complain that the file cannot be found, and ask you to locate it. Select the file with that name from the ones you copied to your H: drive.
    from http://www.york.ac.uk/services/cserv.../movingpst.htm

    does this work?
