Outlook PST will not defragment

  JoJoh 14:51 25 Mar 2005

Hi - I have run all of the programmes suggested on the site including Diskeeper and Vox. All of them seem to work well but none will defragment my Outlook PST file. I have even copied the file to another computer then run the defragment tools on my current computer and I am shown no fragmentation. As soon as I put the file back on my computer I am shown that the Outlook Pst file is heavily fragmented. I have compacted it but this does not seem to help.

Is there any way of defragmenting this file only?Or can I copy the info to a new file?
N.B I have also run the windows check on thepst file and there were no errors.

copy the file to a backup disk. delete it from your hard drive. defrag your hard drive and then put it back
