Upgrading Office 2007 to 2016 on Monday.
Have a huge .PST file, and many Archives going back years, of course.
Have about 1,000 tasks going back years as well. Many marked completed.
Want to upgrade without the Tasks, but still have them reviewable in some way.
Are Tasks inextricably tied within each .PST? Or, is there some way I can cut out the Tasks, so that they do not get reloaded when the 2016 connects with the .PST?
Here's my goal: to have the list of Tasks available to review, but not have them AS Tasks in my new Outlook.
My Idea: print them out before the upgrade and then delete them all. But, seems like a big loss of structure. Plus, any attached files would be tricky to keep. Seems like I can print the Tasks AND any attachments. But, I'm sure there are 50-page contracts and other attachments that would be ridiculous to print out.
My Hope: that there is some way to extricate the Tasks, where they dont load as Tasks in the 2016, but are still themselves viewable. Even with a 3rd Party application.
Any good way of achieving this, or something similar?
