But before you jump on troubleshooting tips and tricks let us know more about the symptoms and causes of this error. 


You may receive the following error while you open Account Settings in MS Outlook and, then click Add on the Data Files tab. You come across the error that appears as under:
An unknown error occurred, error code: 0x80070035
To get rid of the error when you go on the Home ribbon and click New Items and, then select More Items; it results in nothing. You may get disappointed when no new Outlook data files get created. However, it doesn’t show up any error.
Finally, when you try clicking File and, then Open & Export, and, then Open Outlook Data File, the result remains the same as you don’t see any outcome. Outlook data file will not open. However, you won’t see any error either.  


You find this error mostly when your My Documents folder is located on a shared network, and you are not able to access the network. So it results when you fail to access a particular network on which you’re My Documents folder is located. 

Let us now come to know about some useful troubleshooting tips that can help a basic user to get rid of the issue without involving any third party PC service or tech support service. 


To fix the error, you need to determine the location of your My Documents folder and change the invalid path to make it accessible. Follow the below steps to do that.
·         First of all, exit MS Outlook and, then Start Registry Editor.
·         If you are using Windows 8, then you need to press ‘Windows Key + R’ to open a Run dialog box. Now type regedit.exe and then press OK to open the Registry editor.
·         Once you open the Registry Editor, you need to locate and then click the following subkey in the Windows Registry: 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

·         In the next step, you need to verify that the Data field for the Personal value carries the appropriate path of a valid location. If you are sure about the path, then you need to copy and paste the path into Window Explorer and then check if you can access the folder location. 

·         Here you should take into consideration that you are not able to access the path in the Personal value because you remain connected to a different network, or you are offline. However, you can still connect to that network and try to open or create a PST file. But in case, the path in the Personal registry value is no longer a valid location, then you need to change it by following the steps mentioned below.

·         Double-click the Personal value. 

·         Once you reach the Value data box, you need to type the appropriate path to reach you’re my Documents folder, and then click OK.

·         Here you must note that the default data for this value is as under:

·         %USERPROFILE%\Documents

·         Exit the editor.

Hopefully, the error should get resolved now, and you will be able to create data files without any issue. 


By now you will probably have understood how to fix the 0x80070035 error by going in the Windows Registry. However, the tips are very helpful but there is no guarantee that it will fix the PC because one error may get triggered by various causes. So if the tips don’t work in resolving the error, then it is the high time to get in touch with a professional computer repair service professional. A trained and skilled professional can diagnose the PC carefully and then find out the real cause and then troubleshoot the issue accordingly.
