IMPORTANT:  Click for instructions on using ArchiveAssist in an Exchange Server environment.
ArchiveAssist  might be the answer if Outlook hasn't been performing as quickly as it used to, or if you've been experiencing unexplained crashes or freezes.

The .ost or .pst file is the single file which holds most of your Outlook data. As this file increases in size Outlook can slow down and display other aberrant behavior, placing your data at risk. And if you can't archive, your data file will continually grow, increasing the risk. If you've tried to archive your email messages only to find that Outlook simply wouldn't do so, ArchiveAssist™  might be the solution you need!

Let's say you want to archive all email messages which are more than one year old. You'd prepare to archive, specifying the cutoff date before which all messages should be archived. If the archive operation doesn't succeed, however, it's likely that Outlook has applied a Modified Date to the messages you want to archive which is after  the cutoff date you specified. In other words, even though the messages are more than one year old, Outlook has marked them as more current. The fact that you want to archive the messages doesn't matter to Outlook - it's decided for you how those messages should be treated and it doesn't give you any control over your own data! That's not our opinion of how software ought to operate.

Take Back Control of Outlook!

ArchiveAssist lets you select individual messages, or entire folders, and set a new Modified Date for the messages you've selected so that you can tailor your archive operations to your needs, increasing efficiency and protecting your data.

To confirm that the Modified Date is the cause of your archiving failures, add the Modified Date field to your view by doing the following:

1.  From the Outlook menu, click on View > Arrange By > Custom > Fields

2.  In the Show Fields   box select Date/Time Fields  in the dropdown box (if Modified Date isn't already showing in the Available Fields list).

If the Modified Dates  are often more current than the original Received  or Sent Dates, then you need ArchiveAssist !
