I'm using Outlook 2007 on a freshly installed Win 7 machine. My default Outlook file, Outlook.pst, works just fine, as does my default archive file, Archive.pst. I also have older outlook and archive folders sitting in C:\Users\Drew\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\ that I would like to use to import any old emails that are in these files into the current file, thus doing some file housecleaning. However, everytime I try to access either outlook1.pst or archivebak.pst, I get the dreaded " File Access is Denied: You do not have the permission required to access the file C:\Users\Drew\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outl ook1.pst" error. I've checked both files properties, and I have full control permissions over both, and neither of them are read-only. Though when I try to use the scanpst.exe utility to see what the problem might be, it reports the file as being " read-only" .
Since there is no read-only attribute box checked off on either file, is there some place else I should be looking for where this rogue read-only attribute might be set? Any help would be appreciated.
