Every time I start Outlook, I get the message, "The data file 'Archive
Folders' was not closed properly, this file is being checked for problems."
I choose cancel twice and then it goes away. It is an annoyance.

it means outlook didn't close properly and it's checking the file for
consistency and repairing problems. Do you use a pda or something that is
accessing outlook data.

I have a pocket PC. I also ran scanpst.exe on all archive files, and my
outlook.pst file to no avail. I have had a PDA for years & recently pocket
pc and never had this problem. Seems like my Outllook 2002 has been acting
strangely since the last MS security update. Isn't it always the way after a
service pack or patch??

Also, why would the pocket pc want to access an archive file(s) all of a
sudden?

Is the archive file in if the profile? The PPC accesses outlook's default
pst, but all psts in the profile may be affected if outlook doesn't close
correctly. If you don't uncradle the PPC, ActiveSync keeps outlook open,
which causes the problem. The archive pst may be larger so you see the
notification for it, or it's done first (or last) and outlook doesn't update
the dialog.

It still does it when the PPC is not connected, so I don't think it is an
interaction there. What do you think?

Start outlook, cradle the PPC, remove the PPC then close Outlook. Does it
still check the archive pst? If so, then it's something else.

What happens if you allow it to complete the checking rather than cancel?

Once I let it check everything, Outlook will open normally. Also, it will
not only check Archive folders, but will check the personal folders too.
Archive folder checking happens each time. The personal folders will only
happen periodically. I have run scanpst.exe on all the folders to no avail.
This is more of an annoyance than an encumberance to using the program. It
is a delay that I would like to avoid. Thanks for your time regarding this
matter.
