.PST file is too BIG Outlook won't open anymore ..
Posted on 2006-06-16
So, the .PST file is just a hair over 2GB in size. I read that 2GB was about the limit for support on a .PST. This was a .pst using Outlook 2000. So, I uninstalled Office 2k, and I installed Office 2003. Using Outlook inside of Office 2k3, the .PST will still not open (Outlook sort of hangs and then gives an error message about not being able to open the .pst).
So, is there some way to 'break' this .PST up into more then one .pst?
Is there a fix to work on a .PST when you can't use it in Outlook to archive and/or shrink it?
What do you do when you do not have a .PST that works?
