Compress large PST file

Postby bailando » Thu Oct 25, 2012 12:29 pm

I'm using MS Outlook 2007 in my office. I need to compress the size of my PST files. I have three big PST files due to which I'm facing problem. Sometimes my system hangs while using MS Outlook. Someone asked me to delete the unwanted messages from my files but I can't do so as all are important. What I'm looking for is a safe way or method to compress my PST files. May you help me in this issue? Thanks in advance. :)

All you need to do just compact the PST files. It will help you reclaim the wasted space in PST files. See how you can do this:
  1. From the MS Outlook menu, select File, select Data File Management.
  2. Select the desired PST file, go to Settings, click on Compact Now.
You'll be done. :D
