    Hi every body !!:confused:

    Two questions:

    1)What is the automatically created folder "Microsoft User Data" for?

    2)In Mac OS 8 with Microsoft Office 98 you could find the every day automatically created entries (e.g. from games) in the system folder under preferences. Where do they show up in Mac OS X version 10.2 with Microsoft Office X?

    Thanks in advance, regards Jag !!:D

    it's your entourage settings. it's the cache and data resource for your inboxes, schedules, address book, etc. i'm sure somewhere in there is your registration info. don't junk it or change the folder, you'll lose your email.
