Outlook 2010, ost reached 50 gb.

I'm using Outlook 2010 with many different mailboxes connected from exchange 2010 on one computer. The local ost file has reached it's maximum size (50 gb). Is there a way to force outlook to create different ost files for different mailboxes so I could place a part of them on another storage to reduce load on a single hard disk, for example? I don't want to disable caching mode and I can't simply reduce the size of ost by deleting unnecessary mail and etc.

Go to the location of ost file and then copy it somewhere else for a little time(start copy when outlook is closed). Then just create new ost file from File by opening outlook and then later you can also add old ost file to read the mails. But set as default to new ost file.

New file will reach 50 gb again after sync with exchange because it's actually summary size of connected mailboxes from exchange. I want to store each mailbox (there are about ten of them) in it's own ost file not just backup local ost and then create new one that will reach max size after next synchronization with server.

With Outlook 2010, you can have multiple Exchange accounts. Use this method instead of the "open additional mailbox" setting within your primary account
