Anyone else worried about the number of beta desktop search products that are interacting with your Outlook PST files? I've been lucky in that I haven't had too many corrupted PST files in my time using Outlook (knock on wood), but I do worry about all the different search programs that are entering my PSTs to index the e-mails and attachments. I get a security alert from Outlook 2003 every time that Filehand Search goes through my PSTs, although I have not experienced that issue with X1 or Lookout for Outlook. I still haven't installed the new MSN Search and the Google Search doesn't have the capability to search within PSTs yet.
I guess I feel more comfortable with the full versions (i.e., non-beta) of software like X1 and Filehand, but I do still worry about PST corruption. My advice to all of you: Just be careful using these beta tools or letting them have too much interaction with your PST files, especially if you are not backing up your PSTs on a daily basis.
