If I make a copy x 2 of the .exe scanpst.exe can it run on each .pst to speed the job up?

I'm guessing it won't speed up the job at all. The hard drive would be all over the place seeking to the 2-3 different PSTs at once. I'd run em single file for the best performance.

scanpst will only allow a single instance at atime. You can not even statr another instance after making a copy of the file. scan pst shares a common profile for all the users.
