Before you perform any database maintenance, make sure that you have at least three times as much hard disk space available as the current size of your Outlook identity. For example, if the identity is 1 gigabyte (GB), there should be at least 3 GB of free space available on the hard disk (not including the space that is needed for virtual memory).

To determine the size of your identity, follow these steps:

  1. In the Finder, click Go, and then click Home. Open the Documents folder.
  2. Open the Microsoft User Data folder.
  3. Open the Office 2011 Identities folder.
  4. Click the Identity folder.
  5. On the File menu, click Get Info, and then click Get Information. Note the size of the database.

When you create an Outlook identity, hard disk space is allocated for the data that the identity receives as you work. When you add and delete messages, appointments, tasks, and notes, the database can develop wasted space.


Step 3: Discover and back up the current identity

To back up your identity, follow these steps:

  1. In the Finder, click Go, and then click Home. Open the Documents folder.
  2. Open the Microsoft User Data folder.
  3. Control-click or right-click the Office 2011 identities folder, and then select Duplicate. A copy of the folder is created.
  4. Quit all applications.
