HI

You can close OL and delete the cache file with no problems.
The connector will recreate it when it starts.
OL should be much faster afterwards as well.

Subject: MAPI cache dat file size

So one of my managers (running latest MAPI with Outlook 2013 on 64 bit
Windows 7) had a 6GB dat file in his profile. It corrupted. I restored
the dat file prior to the corruption and it is working fine again.
However, the dilemma is the cache file shouldn't be this big,
theoretically. He had a large number of emails, which he has since
archived off to multiple PST files. His account is reporting only about
100MB in size now.

If this was a PST file, I would run Outlook's compression on it. This
does not seem to be possible. So how do we compress the cache file? I
know I can delete the profile but I really don't want to go through
that. Any ideas? If I simply delete the cache dat file, will it be
recreated once Outlook is started, as opposed to deleting the whole
profile and having to reconfigure the profile again?

TIA.
