Hello manoire,

Create Create new PST files, maybe one for each topic area or one for each year.

Open them in Personal folders.  Then drag all the emails and contacts addresses to the new PST files.

Compact the original PST.  Then you can keep all the personal folders open or open them as needed to access emails.

Hope this helps!
