Looking for Utility to Clean/Shrink Outlook OST
Posted on 2011-09-21
For email I run Exchange on SBS 2003. My PCs are running Outlook 2007 and 2010. I am looking for a low-cost utility that will help me efficiently clean-up and shrink my files. My primary Ooutlook file is 1.45GB. In addition, I have moved older email folders into a few PST archives that are 0.3GB, 0.8GB, and 1.0GB. My server is a few years old and all of these files are making my backup jobs too big for my media.
On the server I use a program called TreeSize Professional that lets me see quickly see how much space each file folder occupies. Is there something similar for Outlook/Exchange? Is there a way to delete attachments in bulk while keeping the message. Of course, anything that deletes duplicates would be nice. I would often BCC myself on important emails. This means I have one copy in my InBox and one in my Sent Items.
Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks!!
