If you compare different personal information manager programs then will easily see that the Microsoft Outlook is the mostly used and on the top of the list. It is well build to manage all the messaging, emails, contacts management, files management, notes taking, calendar entries, Internet surfing and other activities. All these things make it most successful information manger.
In Microsoft Outlook 2002 and earlier versions the old format which today is also called as “Outlook 97-2002 personal Folder File” and commonly known as ANSI PST has the limitation up to 65,000 items per folder and an overall PST Size of 2GB. If the PST was created in the oldest versions of outlook, the number of items per folder was as low as 16,000.
Due to the 2GB limitation on the Outlook .PST file, it is important to keep the file size of .PST always less than 2GB to prevent the PST file from being corrupted. The best way is by using the PST Splitting software that is capable to split 2GB PST File to several small .PST files. These smaller files will be used just like the original .PST file.
The Features of Split PST include:
- It shows messages in 3-view format
- Split large Outlook PST files
- Restore the RTF and HTML messages
- the divided PST Files can be stored on any safe place like other disk or other system in the network
- It makes individual profile for every single PST file
- Run on all the versions of Microsoft Outlook like 000, 2002 (XP), 2003, 2007
Microsoft has ended the usage of ANSI format and Outlook 2003 has the Unicode format. This format supports no limitation in the number of items per folder or in the size on the PST. The PST files made in Outlook 2003 or later are therefore referred as Unicode PST. But it also needs to be divided into number of other outlook PST files.
People always ask that why it need to split 4GB PST File if it is using the Unicode format and there is no limitation of size on it. The reason is in order to maintain the operability and speed of Microsoft Outlook. Microsoft Outlook will easily operate on smaller files and as the file size grow large like 4GB or even higher, you will encounter that Outlook works but on extremely slower speed.
The Split PST works on both the ANSI PST and Unicode PST and gives the fixed user defined number of smaller and fast usable PST files. After the split procedure, all you need to do is to import PST files to use them. All the metadata of the documents in the PST file are intact and goes with the splitted PST files. It Split 4GB PST file on the basis of sender’s email ID and date. You do not need to worry that how can you arrange the files because it do it all.
