Hw to find actual Outllook PST file location(s)

Hi,
Anyone know a registry key where Outlook keeps the actual locations of
any PST files it opens? I know that the default PST location is
%appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook but some users have cleverly put PST files
in multiple locations so making sure they all get backed up becomes a
problem.
Thanks!

While in outlook:
right click on the pst, go to properties, advanced button, & then filename -
it will be truncated & greyed out, but you can select the field & mouse or
arrow over to get the full location.

I searched for my archive.pst in the registry to see if you might be able to
cull it from there, but no luck. Not sure how else you can do it. You
*could* always attempt to brave the news://news.microsoft.com forums for
assistance (come back with your stories).

Hmm, a bit more Googling and looking reveals that the file locations
are binary encoded and stored (Win XP) in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows
Messaging Subsystem\Profiles - search in there for 001f6700 and the
binary data will be a full file name and path. Now to get them out....
