Either the article or the comment by Jerry Frey is wrong.
The article describes that split created one file with items hit by the filter condition, and the original PST left as-is, and that definitely is no split. A split creates at least two files, all with unique content, which can be merged to get the original PST without any duplicates.

Hi,

In case of Split pst by size it Split one PST file into multiple PST.
In case of By Date, By Mail id, the software creates a new PST file as per the size or as per mail id selected.

Hope this clears your doubt :)

ReFS-Logo
In current releases of Windows 10, MS removed the ability to format a volume with ReFS. That feature is moved to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. The requisite files exist in Pro, but functionality is locked and/or otherwise unavailable. A $125 upgrade charge to enable, or $205 for a retail license.

Interesting.  Why did I get a different result?

I did boot from the setup media.  And the target volume was a secondary drive.  NTFS was allowed, but ReFS returned the error.

chuckle.  I am supposed to be working on a honey-do list today, but I will find time to re-approach.

Thanks for the heads up.

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Exchange Server

The MCTS: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 certification validates your skills in supporting the maintenance and administration of the Exchange servers in an enterprise environment. Learn everything you need to know with this course.

Often, the users face difficulty in accessing Outlook 2016 PST files on Windows 10 computer. One of the reasons behind it is the improper functioning of MS Outlook when the user tries to open it. MS Outlook suddenly stops working, or it will not open, and the chances of losing crucial data or information within the PST file becomes very high.


These problems might occur due to upgradation of Windows, the configuration of Microsoft applications, and many other applications or programs. The issues faced with Windows upgrade include incompatible software or configuration is not up to date, and this could be one of the reasons why PST file is not opening on Windows 10 computer.


Below listed are some common issues that may affect the health of Outlook 2016 PST files:


  • Issue 1: Incompatible programs: Windows operating system receive updates with time. However, installed applications on an operating system are not updated, and faces incompatibility issues take place. Outlook starts to produce errors, especially when MS Office Suite and more specifically Word is not updated.
  • Issue 2: System files or applications are missing: At times, when the system files or application files are missing, Outlook desists from working properly. In many cases, the Outlook application is not installed completely and requires reinstallation for proper functionality.
  • Issue 3: Abrupt system shut down: The sudden shut down of Windows 10 affects Outlook while it is in the process of email transfer. Later, it might start usually and abruptly shut down after opening. 
  • Issue 4: PST file becomes oversized: It is a prevalent problem when the PST exceeds the pre-defined storage space. Hence, Outlook does not read the PST file, and it stops working on a Windows 10 PC.


Resolution


There are many ways to resolve the inaccessibility issue of Outlook 2016 PST file. To cut the long story short try the suggested fixes.


Manual method to repair PST file


The first aid fix to restore a corrupt PST can be done using the Inbox Repair Tool, ScanPST.exe. Find this inbuilt utility tool on your machine (which is a tool developed by Microsoft to resolve issues related to PST files) and run it. Few simple steps to do this:


  1. Close Outlook properly if it is running
  2. Find and run ScanPST.exe
  3. Browse to locate the PST file or manually type the location or file name (if location unknown)
  4. Launch Outlook and click on File Info Account Setting Data Files
  5. Note file path and file name and Click on Close     OK      Exit Outlook
  6. Launch Outlook and create a new PST in your profile
  7. Drag all the recovered items to the new PST from “Lost and Found” folder


It is an easy process but suffers several limitations like data loss and require technical expertise. Therefore, to overcome these limitations, the recommended fix is to use an Automated method which is best suited for non-technical users as well.


Automated method Third-Party tool for PST repair


In case the above manual method does not work, you can opt for a third-party tool which is another best and straightforward solution to fix such issues. The IT professionals recommend Kernel for Outlook PST Repair tool. Such type of tools offer extensive features to technical as well as non-technical users at ease.


Final words


We recommend the users to first use the inbuilt Microsoft utility first in case of issues with MS Outlook. If the problem still persists, use PST Repair tool to repair MS Outlook data files in a few clicks.

Thank you for these instructions.  I was finally able to get my Outlook and hostgator email linked after months of frustration.  I've had Outlook and hostgator mail linked for years but randomly last summer the program would no longer accept the settings.  I used the separate profile instructions and was able to link the accounts.  I still get a certificate error though.  Wondering what why that is happening.

That depends on your backup software.  It's not necessary to backup.  If you restored the data drive and not the VSS backup drive, then you wouldn't have VSS copies from the past.

Well written! This story exactly why I say you have to keep your drivers up to date and review your hardware if there are no Windows 10 drivers to support it. (Much easier with desktops than laptops, I admit).

In one of my desktops I have a USB wifi that Windows 10 has never liked. Every time there was a major Windows 10 update, the wifi would stop working, which would break internet access, making troubleshooting a pain. Since I'm cheap, rather than buy a new wifi card, I finally gave up and installed an access point to cover the wifi connection and used a LAN connection to the desktop instead.
