Getting an error that the .pst file has exceeded the 2GB limit like it is 2003. I added a PST folder in registry and added all the max files size strings to give me a larger file size but nothing seems to work. Am I doing something wrong?

So this is what I did. Should i enter in something for the hexidecimal as well, or just doing the 4294967295 in the decimal field ok?

Try either. One should be fine.

Check within Outlook the properties of the PST file. Make sure it is Unicode (20 GB and not ANSI (2 GB).   See if that is the issue.

If you still have problems, you could always Create a new PST file and import your old PST data into it.
