Manage your mailbox II: Understand your choices for long-term saving

Folders in Archive.pst file and in Personal Folders.pst file


As you've learned, for both Archive and Personal Folders, messages are moved (not copied) to an Outlook folder. With both methods, you'll always be able to access your moved messages from a folder in the Navigation Pane in Outlook.

Another similarity between the methods is that the folders, the subfolders, and the messages they contain are stored in a file on your computer called an Outlook data file. Other names for an Outlook data file include Office Outlook Personal Folders File, PST, and personal store (because you personally store a PST file on your own computer).
