How to Compress PST in Outlook 2007

Compacting PST for Outlook 2007

        There are no hard and fast rules for this. Unless you are having problems, such as Outlook running very slow, or are in desperate need of more disk space, I would suggest compressing PST files would be your first step towards increasing disk space.

Steps to be followed:

1. Click File, then Data File Management. This opens the Account Settings dialog box to the Data Files tabbed page.

2. making sure that you are working on the Data Files tabbed page, select the .pst file you want to compact.


3. Click Settings. Settings and other options appear above the list of .pst files. This opens the Settings dialog box for the selected .pst file.


4. Click Compact Now.

5. When compacting is done, click OK, then Close.


And that will do it. Repeat as desired for additional .pst files.

These steps can be followed for Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003 in Windows Xp and Windows 7
