Interestingly when i view the folder properties and view file size it was
like 60 mg. Yet the pst itself was 2.1 gig. I decided to create a new default
pst file and import the items from my 2.1 gig into it. Worked like a charm.
The files is now 60 meg. I still have NO idea where the 2 gig was coming from
or what was making it that large. Doesn't make any sense. But in any case
I've got it back to normal size.

Thanks for the input!

Custom forms and other hidden items can enlarge it, although not usually by
2 GB. Thanks for letting us know.
