Microsoft Outlook PST file size is limited by default. Surely it can be increased using the group policy or system registry depending on Windows OS edition you have. But the file system may have such limits as a maximum file size also. What if you want to write a backup copy to DVD or a flash drive? The users of our software want to maintain the PST file size on their own criteria and control such limits.
Output PST splitting during email conversion
As those who have been using Outlook Transfer software for a while know, we never stop doing our good share of research and development to improve our products. One feature on our wishlist was to make the PST split functionality available. Now, after spending some time combing through several algorithms, we found a way to get the best result which is speedy and accurate. Which means that now Outlook conversion tools are able to split output PST file to multiple smaller PSTs right out of the box.
This option is available in the menu Options and in a Save to PST mode. Please note: the split size should be chosen each time you running the software, this new functionality is not enabled by default. You must go to menu Options > Split Output PST File > … then chose the corresponding volume size option. Usage instruction for the PST splitting is also provided.
Postpone the email conversion
Another option allows to save the list of source email containers in to a file and load it in a future. For what it is needed? For example if you have thousands EML files and folders to import the file scan may take a while. You may want to save the list after the search of storages and close the program. On the next day you may start it and load the list from a file. The list may contain the status of checkboxes so it may help you to continue the conversion after the interruption.
Pause the email conversion
Additional feature allows to pause then email conversion and continue a bit later. To pause the email migration process simple click Abort button. The software will ask you to confirm that you really want to abort. At this stage the email conversion is paused.
You may continue the conversion when you want, however Outlook Transfer software should remain executed. Even if you confirm and abort the conversion, you may continue until you press the “Find Storages” button again.
Download and update your software to version 5.2 and enjoy new possibilities!
