Solved Why does my Outlook freeze during synchronis step

November 9, 2017 at 01:25:31
Specs: Windows 10
My outlook has started freezing during Synchronizing subscribed folders step, after processing for some time.
If it freezes up completely, resetting the PC is the only way to get working again. Sometimes if able to stop Outlook, it can't be restarted saying that the .ost file can't be opened. A PC restart is the only fix in this case.

Try re-installing Outlook from your Microsoft Office CD.

✔ Best Answer
I would recommend that you close Outlook and delete your ost file. It will be recreated when you re-open Outlook.

If you need the path for the file, I can provide that.

This appears to have done the trick. Thanks.

Unfortunately, after using for a while I have noticed that the process has lost a series of my Contacts under Outlook. Most are there but some are missing for some reason. Any ideas would be welcome.
