I added the following to an old thread I had done and got no response for |
awhile, so I think that, maybe, I should have posted as a new item, so here
My outlook has been exhibiting more and more delays. As K Orland originally
recommended, I did detect and repair, then scanpst.exe, and then compacted
my PST but it hasn't helped. My Outlook is so slow as to be almost useless
now. I can type say, 5 words, at a time, then have to wait 30 seconds for
it to catch up, etc, etc.
Does anyone have any helpful ideas for me, PLEASE!!! I did later notice
that I only had about 2.7GB left on my hard drive of about 80GB and so I ran
the equivalent of scandisk. then deleted so that I would have more than 15%
free which then allowed me to run defrag. Even with only 2.7G free, Outlook
was the only program exhibiting slowness symptoms that I could notice.
Still things are no better.
If the problem is likely in Outlook rather than in my PST, does it make
sense to uninstall Outlook, then reinstall and import the PST?
