What's on your R Drive -
Profiles and Mail Folders?
By Ethan Froese
Some of you may have
noticed one of the following folders in your R drive called mail,
profile or profiles and may have wondered what this mysterious folder
contains. Some of you may have even taken things a step further
and decided to delete that suspicious looking folder. I implore
you _ don't.
This folder contains
information about your email, bookmarks and other settings that
need to be saved. The most important files in these folders are
the ones ending in ".pst" and ".pab". These files contains email
that you have moved from the Exchange email server to your R drive
to avoid those pesky "over the quota limit messages" in Outlook.
If you do decide to
do some spring cleaning and you see something on your R drive that
you didn't put there, please contact someone at ETCS before you
delete it. We can restore files from the backups, but a phone call
takes a lot less time.
