Outlook 2K: Can you relocate the main .pst file

Can I relocate the main data file saved by Outlook? It would be nice to have it in Mydocuments so that I can back it up more easily.

Don't even think about relocating it! Windows won't be able to find the new location.

In XP, the Outlook file is stored in C:\Documents and Settings\(User Name)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

If you are using XP and back up 'Everyone's Documents and Settings' that will include your Outlook data.

I thought that I might be able to as it appears to be possible with OE. Never mind I will just have to sve a shortcut to the relevant folder so that I can get to it easily for backing up.
