  • Hi,

    It's not possible to enable multiple users to view the same PST file at the same time. Moreover, although you can put PST files on network share, it's not an supported configuration. See the following Microsoft KB article for more details:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/297019/limits-to-using-personal-folders--pst-files-over-lan-and-wan-links

    If you are using Exchange server, you may consider to import the useful data from the PST files into shared folders on the server.

    Regards,
