Want to split large and heavy .pst files !!

Recommended Posts

Why not just open them up and split them up? They are database files so you will have a hard time trying to split them up using any type of automated process (FYI).

You can try "Move to folders" feature of MS Outlook 2003 to split PST file into multiple parts. This may take a lot of time and technical understanding. Follow the steps given below:

1. Launch MS Outlook.

2. Click File tab > New > Outlook Data File.

3. A dialog box “New Outlook Data File” will appear. Select Office Outlook Personal Folder File (.pst) and click OK.

4. A new dialog box “Create Microsoft Personal Folders” will pop up. Type a display name for this new PST file.

5. Now select the folder that you want to move to the new PST file. You may move one or more items to new PST file.

6. On the Edit menu, click Move to Folder.

7. A new dialog box “Move Items” will appear. Click New.

8. Again a new dialog box “Create New Folder” will appear. Enter a new name for this new folder in the Name box.

9. Click the new PST file under the “Select where to place the folder” option. Then click OK.

10. In the “Move Items” dialog box, make sure that the new folder in the new PST file is selected. Click OK.

 

You can also try a third-party tool. I can recommend SysInfoTools PST Split tool here to split PST files into multiple parts. It will safely split a large sized PST file (ANSI and Unicode) without causing any changes to the original files.

 

Thanks.

I am using Outlook 2003.I have huge numbers of .pst files. I want to manage Outlook by dividing PST files by Folder. But i don't want to compact files.

If you don't want to compact PST files, you can try one thing. You can transfer mailbox content from one PST file into new multiple PST files. There's no need to use any 3rd party tool for this. All you need to use is Outlook client. It has few built-in features which you can use here, such as: Archive, Import & Export, Move to Folders. Also, you can use Drag & Drop feature of Outlook client.

 

Hope the shared information would be helpful here.

 

Thanks and best regards.

MS Outlook provides three inbuilt utility that helps users to make the PST file small.

 

1. Archive Features of Outlook

2. Export or Import PST

3. Move to Folders

 

PS: Suggest you upgrade your Outlook to the latest version.

The best way of splitting Outlook PST files is by using third party tool, it's easy and effective, and less time-consuming.
But there are some DO IT YOURSELF methods also available. Actually, there are three simple ways to split your Outlook PST file
1. Archive them
2. Import & Export them and
3. Move to Folder
There is an article How to Split PST, in this article the both Option has been discussed.

 

I hope this will helps.

      Can someone tell me how can i open the emails in unicode format ( 2013 outlook version ) ?
       
      Regards,

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.
       
      [attachment=0]outlook-2016.jpg[/attachment]
       
      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      "c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP"
       
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      Let me know how this works for you!
