The IT guy who installed and set up my PC explained to me that, every now and again, I should compact my Personal Folder.
He explained that, as we delete e-mails from time to time, there are 'spaces' left in the Personal Folder, which takes up memory (please note this is my lay person's explanation of what he said )
My questions to you -
1. Generally, speaking, does this compacting process take a long time ? I did it earlier today, and it kept saying "Compacting ...." without ending the function. It seemed to take very long and I do not know if that is 'normal' ?
2. Whilst compacting, is it prudent to close all other windows and not continue with other applications or functions on the PC ?
