Dear all,

I would like to know how can we convert Office 2000 Outlook pst files into Office 2003 files. I would have done it one by one if there were 10 odd files however in our company there are more than 100 and I am thinking if there is any batching script which I can use to convert all my pst's into 2003 format?

Is this something which can be done or not?

Many thanks

Kind Regards

Jehanzeb

Just an extra tip if you like.
To force Unicode or ANSI PSTs, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook.


Add the NewPSTFormat value with one of the following values:


Prefer Unicode PST: 0 (default) Prefer ANSI PST: 1 Enforce Unicode PST: 2 Enforce ANSI PST: 3

Ok this demo version only converts 3 folders. Don't we have a free version or any other way of doing this?
