split large size PST files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I have some very large sized Outlook PST files which are difficult to store and handle. Is there any way so that I can divide these large sized files and still can use them as I am currently using. I do not want to lose any data or access to these files. Please suggest some suitable way. TIA

  • Hello Ethan,

    The problem you are going through is quite common. Generally, the size of the PST file becomes large due to the accumulation of too much data. But, no need to worry. You can split your larger PST file into multiple smaller PST files. However, it can not be done manually. But, there are a no. of third-party software tools available in the market. You can use one of them as per your convenience.

    I have also gone through the same issue some months ago. As recommended by someone and also my personal research, I decided to use one software tool that is very efficient and reliable. I think you can also give a try to that.
