importing a huge outlook pst file
Posted on 2011-09-13
I have just installed office 2007 on a clients pc with a clean install of windows 7
the client had 2 pst files to import to outlook which were taken from his old outlook 2003/windows xp machine.
the first was just under 2GB and went through with no hassle (other than the emails all being placed in the deleted items folder!! )
tried importing the second pst file (just under 8GB!) and outlook got so far through then the import dialog dissapeared... but it stopped before it completed the import we think, as the emails from 2008 to 2010 were missing.
Is there any way around this, or a better way to get the emails from the old system?
