Hi Guys,

Here is what I need to achieve. I have archived PST files for last 8 years. I need to find the way to be able to search through them without adding them to my outlook and search one by one.
is there any software that can do this?

thanks in advance.

Hi,

Google desktop will do the  job for you. Free, works like a charm, finds all stuff in second.

Links as toolbar in Outlook, also you can use full web-based local search.

Only downside - you need to link all pst to the Outlook.

If you want to have another program to search, I would recommend Windows Search 4.0 to do the same thing.

As jdenner mentioned, you have to link the PST files before any search can take place.
