    I want to move my Outlook files to a new SSD drive. I don't see any way in Outlook to specify the file location. There's an export/import option - should I use that? I'm guessing, though, that the import would simply put them in the same default location rather than keep them on the SSD drive. I've googled but haven't found anything helpful yet.

    Where are these files now?
    Are they all in a particular folder?
    Have you tried just using the finder to copy the folder to the other drive?

    They are in the default location that Outlook uses. Moving them to a different folder isn't going to tell Outlook where to look for them :). There's no where in Outlook's preferences to set the location.

    Maybe moving the folder from Finder, then making an alias with the same name that points to the SSD?
