Do you have an extensive Outlook PST file? That slows down your computer or causes other problems, and you can split it into several smaller files. You can do it using various methods, depending on what software you have available and your level of technical expertise.
If you have Microsoft Outlook, you can use the built-in Archive feature to split your PST file into smaller parts. To do this,
- Open Outlook and go to File > Archive.
- Select the folders you want to include in the archive, choose a date range, and then specify where you want to store the archive file.
- Once complete, you will have a separate PST file for each selected folder.
If you don't have Outlook or want more control over the splitting process, you can use a third-party utility such as Regain PST Splitter. This software allows you to split PST files by size, date range, or folder structure.
It can also merge multiple PST files into one, which can be handy if you've previously divided up your PST file and want to put it back together again.
Regardless of which method you use, splitting up a large PST file can help improve performance and make it easier to manage your email data
