    IIRC there is still a 20Gb limit on PST files, so maybe exporting in smaller chunks may solve your problem

    Note to other posters – threads like this have, in the past, become spam magnets. Call me the Grinch if you like, but any “one post wonders” with links to commercial software WILL BE BANNED.

    [SIZE=20px]FYI[/SIZE], Outlook 2003 & 2007 were both 20GB PST limited. Outlook 2010, 2013 & 2016 have a 50GB limit but you have to allow that expanded limit with a Regedit.

    Can you give us a few more clues – you started with “a 38Gb OST file” now you have 3 – presumably in three profiles?
    What errors do you get?
    What is in the event logs?
    Have you tried exporting from the mailbox(es) using PowerShell?

    Well done for solving it!
    [USER=”96419″]JJKing[/USER] – thanks for that info – I was blissfully unaware the size had been increased (although for many ot my mail hoarders, 50Gb will soon be too small!)

    You can try this manual solution-

    1- Launch the MS Outlook application
    2- Go to Tools Menu > Account settings > Email account > More settings
    3- Now click on the Advanced tab and then select “Use cached Exchange Mode” checkbox
    4- Click Offline Folder File Settings and then locate the OST file by clicking on Browse button

    Start Outlook again.

    Now, click File -> Import and Export -> Export to a file -> Personal Folder File (PST)
