Single large .pst versus multiple smaller .pst's
Posted on 2008-06-11
I've been doing some research on Outlook 2007 performance issues and I was wondering if I could get some opinions.
I found the following KB which mentions .pst/.ost file sizes and a brief description of the performance you could expect from each size range.
My question is, are there any performance benefits to having several smaller .pst files compared to a single larger .pst?
We have a group of users at our site who are required to store email and calendar appointments from years past which causes some of them to have larger .pst's. Their systems aren't exactly power houses and are scraping by with Office 2007. We have many other similar model systems around the site but the very poor performance we're seeing seems to be isolated to the individual group that must keep their records.
Thanks in advance for any info you guys can provide =)!
