I have a PST file that was used for backup  - there was 20G of data in the Deleted Items file - and when I emptied the Deleted Items and did a Compact, the PST file size did not shrink. It looks like it is still in the Recoverable Items folder. How do I empty this, so that I can shrink the PST file? Outlook 2013 is what I am using.
