I have an issue with moving a pst from a Windows 7 to another Windows 7 that is 15gb. The users is telling me she is missing a few folders. How can this happen and is there anyway to get them back.

Have you ensured all .PST's have been moved? It could be there was some folders on a separate .PST and that .PST didn't get copied over, try running a scan on the old machine for *.PST and see if any other archives reside on that machine.

If any other .PST's are found on the old PC copy these over and then add them to the Outlook client and fingers crossed all is well.

I did a repair on the pst file and I did found another file with the folders she was looking for, it took a lot to move them to this file. I have talked to the user and told her this pst file is in very bad shape. I would like to try to break this up into at least 2 pst files, do you know a safe way to do this. This pst likes to freeze up a lot and stop Outlook from responding.

I keep trying that but Outlook keeps going into Not Responding. I have run repairs on this pst several times now.
