path specified is not valid

When I open Outlook I get an error message that the path specified for the
file E:\archieve.pst is not valid. This is connected with one of two archive
files and there is nothing in the first one but empty foldrs and this other
one won't open. I don't need it at all and would like it to just go away but
I cannot close it because it cannot find the path. I had an awful time
getting my files transferred over and am very happy with it now, but I have
no idea what file it is referring to as it doesn't recognize any pst files on
any of back up drives or jump drives. How can I make this stop? I get the
message and its related windows several times and it is making me crazy. I am
working in Office 2007 on Vista. Thank you.

Re: path specified is not valid

So your E:\ drive is...? At one time you had a pst-file connected there.
What did you change?

What method of transferring Outlook data did you use?
You can try;

Otherwise, recreate your mail profile.

Re: path specified is not valid

Thank you. All good links. I did reconnect the E:\ drive memory devise that
held the pst file but was still not able to open the archive. However with
that drive still connected I went to the personal folders and selected close
personal folders. That apparently did close the pst file on the E:\ drive so
that now I have stopped getting the message. Thank you for your help.
