PST Upgrade & Downgrade Has Become an Essential Task for Outlook Users. Why?

PST upgrade and downgrade are two different operations which are performed individually.

PST Upgrade

Upgrading PST means converting PST from ANSI to Unicode format. If you're upgrading Outlook from older to newer version, you must convert ANSI PST to Unicode. ANSI PST file is supported by Outlook 97 to Outlook 2002. PST file saved in ANSI format has 2 GB size limitation. To avoid this size limit and get more free space to store large mailbox, Outlook users upgrade their Outlook client. Though you can get maximum size of 20 to 50 GB by upgrading Outlook, but this doesn't provide you more space in your old PST files. You must upgrade PST files from ANSI to Unicode format to increase the size limitation.

PST Downgrade

Downgrading PST means converting PST files from Unicode to ANSI format. If you're downgrading Outlook from newer to older version, you must convert Unicode to ANSI PST. Unicode PST files are supported by Outlook 2003 and later versions. PST files saved in Unicode format have a size limitation of 20 to 50 GB which is fairly large. But sometimes, users need to downgrade their Outlook client due to any reason. You can't open a Unicode PST file in any older version of Outlook. To open a Unicode PST file in Outlook 2002 or any earlier version, you must convert it to ANSI format.

Software prompt error message: "Please reinstall the application, some dll's are missing to install." What am I missing to run the software?

The software relies on "redemption.dll" , which is core dll for functionality. It is a COM Dll so it needs to be registered or it must be present on the same folder on which "software.exe" reside. Please make sure that dll is present on the above said location and try to install it using regsvr32.exe which is a standard windows executable to register COM Dlls.

Standard command to register COM dll on your system is:

c:\> regsvr32.exe "[path of program folder]\redemption.dll" There is a chance that you have installed various other email migration tools from different vendors on your system and they also use the same core DLL but different versions. COM Dlls are system wide available so their installation can also cause to this behavior of the software. If possible then try to un-install them from your system. If the problem persists, please email us again at and mention your OS version and MS Outlook version you are using. This will greatly help us to identify the problem. If you have another system on your disposal then you can install our demo version on that system and check for this behavior, if things work on that system then without uninstalling demo version install the full version and send us new .info file at and we will issue a new software activation key.

Considering that the PST files I had recently received officially were of the older PST version and I did not want to face any compatibility conflict, my problem was resolved with PST Upgrade which very easily converted the file from ANSI PST to Unicode PST formatting. Thank you, SysInfoTools!

- Nathaniel Patrick

As a technical person, I have seen many applications online serving PST upgrade with reliability claims but none that could safely covert Unicode PST to ANSI PST. PST upgrade and downgrade from SysInfoTools did the job very efficiently and I am completely grateful for the same!

- Lorena Williams

As a professional, I must work on Outlook email for the wide type of official work and was completely stuck when I got to work on older version of PST file and had to compromise on my output. Then, one of my friends recommended this PST upgrade tool from SysInfoTools that worked well to easily convert ANSI PST to Unicode PST formatting.

- Dianna Welch

The best part of this software is the fact that it is a PST upgrade and Downgrade so that both conversion processes could be done in a single shot. As I could completely upgrade my PST to avoid corruption issue with this amazing tool similarly downgrade it at the same time.
