Is there a limit to the number of PST that can be created? Will exceding it
cause errors?

Is there a limit to the size of a PST file before errors occur?

Thanks!

As pst-files are in that respect just files; you can create as many as you
like. How much pst-files you can have linked to a single Outlook mail
profile is probably more than you can handle. UNICODE pst-files are limited
to 20GB by default but can grow to a practically unlimited size. Even then,
no errors will occur which could affect your data negatively.
