Multiple .pst files vs. one big one?

Multiple .pst files vs. one big one?

Post by T. Wis » Tue, 03 Jan 2006 16:21:46


As my .pst files get larger, I'm wondering if I ought to break them down
into smaller files, which would mean my keeping several .pst files open at
one time. Is it easier on OL to have several smaller files open or one
large one?

Also, at what size does a .pst file start to get too big?

I'm running OL 2003 on WinXP.

Outlook 2003's .pst file size limit is around 22GB.

Huge. At what size do we start to get performance slowing down?

Outlook 2003 has the capacity for a HUGE .pst file so you can use one. I
believe it will accommodate up into the TB range. You are fine with the one
PST but I would be sure to back it up on a regular basis.
