Outlook - Can't Create Attachment Error

You regularly attach a file using the same file name. After doing it lots of times it stops working with the error message "Can't Create file: NameOfSomeFile, Right-Click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder"

Quick: Delete files from Outlook temp folder. Exact path varies but should look like c:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK1D8 Delete all the temp files in this folder.


You see in the Outlook Temp folder the file you are trying to attach listed 99 times.


Every time you attach a file Outlook makes a copy of that file in the Outlook temp folder. Outlook calls out the "Can't Create file:..." error after you get up to 99 copies of the same file in the temp folder. The easy fix is to just delete these temporary files.

If you can not find the Outlook temp folder, do a search for it. Go to the Start menu, On the Run line enter regedit and select OK, edit menu, select find, check only the Values box and search for OutlookSecureTempFolder. This should find the registry entry with the exact path to the Outlook temp folder.

I am a Microsoft Outlook user. Few days ago, I got an error in outlook.
I was unable to open outlook. I tried Inbox repair tool to fix outlook file, but it could not help me. After that I contacted with Repair Outlook PST
. They are Outlook pst expert, they repaired my pst file.
