Windows 7 & Outlook 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I seems to me the is a storage limit of 2 Gigs thats is allowed for a pst file for Outlook 2007 running on a Windows 7 machine.  I keep on getting error 0x8004060C when my pst file reaches to about 2 Gigs.  This seems very strange to me when Outlook 2007 does not place a limit on the pst file.  Anyone know what can I do to fix this problem.

    Thanks

    The .pst file has a different format and folder size limit in Outlook 2007 and in Outlook 2003

    Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 have both a different format and a larger overall size limit for the personal folders (.pst) file than the .pst files that are in the earlier versions of Microsoft Outlook. In Outlook 2002 and earlier, the .pst files are in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) format, and the overall size has a limit of 2 gigabytes (GB).

  • Outlook 2007 .pst file size limit is 20 GB, you might have an old .pst file from Outlook 2000 -2002 or you maybe created old version of .pst file inside Outlook 2007. I recommend creating new .pst file and moving messages into it.
