The problem i have having with the pst which are over 2GB in size produced by exmerge when i try to open those pst's even in outlook 2003 i get error "Errors have detected in the file <\\path...>. Quit outlook and all mail-enabled............." (please see attced screen shot of the error)

Hello tech2010,

Back up the original PST file first.  Then repair a 2GB Outlook Personal Folder with PST2GB

Hope this helps!

is there any way that I can fix the issue with exmerge, because i have many PST prodduced by exmerge which are more than 2GB in size. I certainly can't sit and run PST2GB on each pst file. please tell me the better way to fix the root cause. thanks
To fix the problem, use Outlook 2003 or 2007 and create newly formated PST file in unicode format. The new format is will accept up to 20 GB of data.
