Avoid PST Corruption by Splitting Large PST File

Users get the error messages in Outlook due to corrupt PST file and the PST may get corrupt due to virus attack, configuration settings or large size. In most of the cases, it is found that large size of PST is the cause of corruption. To avoid PST corruption we can split the PST file and reduce the size.
Thus PST size can be reduced by following steps
First, create a new PST file in Outlook
Open Outlook, File, Account Settings and add new Profile
Create a new PST file and save it. Remember the Path of PST
Now the next step is to move data from large PST to new PST
Launch the Import/ Export Wizard in Outlook
Select option ‘Export to a file’ and in next window select Outlook Data File (.PST)
Select folder to move items and in next window click on browse window
Go to the location where PST file is stored
Click on Finish to export data to new PST.
The size of the original PST will be reduced and the PST will not get corrupt. This is the easiest method to split Outlook PST apart from using PST splitter https://bit.ly/2Cqbfef
