PST File too Big

Microsoft Outlook is an email application whose attributes are saved & located as PST file in a hard drive. Its default location is different in different Windows operating system versions. It provides data security and also allows storing lots of file that is not placed in web based email clients. But MS Outlook profile is assigned a limited size, depending on the versions. Different versions has different size limit i.e. MS Outlook before 2003 has 2 GB size limit, 2003  & 2007 has 20 GB limit and latest version 2010  is of 50 GB and if it exceed its size limit then Outlook performance degrades & the file gets corrupted. At that time PST file will not allow to open your Outlook Profile and thus you will be unable to access your profile.

Outlook is very simple to use and is found in different versions such as 2000, 2003, 2007 and 2010. The problem is found maximum in Microsoft Outlook 2000 because it has only 2GB limit. To minimize the problem, later version of Outlook has increased its size to 20-50 GB but still there is a possibility of corruption due to oversized PST file. The reason behind this is that email messages have bulky attachment stored with them that increases its size. To reduce its size and make it corruption free, you can use compressing technique. But sometimes it may also face corruption issue if the process is not done properly.

When PST file size limit exceeds you may end up with different error message thrown by Microsoft Outlook, that are mentioned below:

  1. Xxxx.pst cannot be accessed - 0x80040116: This error may be encountered when oversized Outlook file named as xxxx.pst is attempted to be loaded.

  2. The file could not be added to the folder. The action could not be completed: When you try to add new message to the Outlook file, and it attains maximum limit during the copy process, then you may face this error.

You may also come across error messages like “The file xxxx.pst has reached its maximum size. To reduce the amount of data in this file, select some items that you no longer need, then permanently (Shift + Del) delete them”, “Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server - Receiving' reported error (0x8004060C): 'Unknown Error 0x8004060C” & “Can't copy the item” while trying to add new files to the oversized Outlook profile.

To fix corrupted or broken file you can use inbuilt tool scanpst.exe to repair & recover lost PST files or you can use PST splitter tool to split the large archive file for smooth performance. But both has disadvantages, scanpst.exe cannot fix severely corrupted file & splitter tool deletes some files to minimize size of the original PST file.
