MS Outlook Tools being a very prominent brand has developed lot of software solutions belonging to arena of data conversion, data recovery and processing of email files belonging to various email clients. The product which will be scrutinized here is the latest version of Split PST, version 4.1.

Spilt PST is an approach to resolve the issues which occur after the MS Outlook PST file reaches an alarming size. Large PST file can make your MS Outlook application run very slow and also makes the Outlook show errors while processing. To make such things under control, this tool can be used and it has remarkable outcomes.

Software Supports: MS Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 & 2013 formats

Software Set Up: Set up of MS Outlook Split PST is easy. You just need to download/buy the software from; http://www.splitpst.msoutlooktools.com/and double-click on the executable file which is downloaded. Software supports all the Windows versions and thus you can utilize this software on any Windows platform.
Working:
Step 1: Start the execution of software by running the application. The first window will open in front of you like below. Here you will be able to see many options in Main Menu. Click Split option to start the software.

Step 2: Here select the options of splitting;
PST Format
Software allows you to split both ASCII and UNICODE type of files and supports PST files belonging to all the MS Outlook versions from MS Outlook 2000 to MS Outlook 2010. Depending upon the version of your PST file (version of MS Outlook to which .pst belongs) you can select the option of MS Outlook format.
Split Options

Split by Size: You can split the PST file on the basis of its file size and this division will help you to keep multiple PST files of smaller size for better management. For this, you will have to provide the size according to which the PST file will be divided. In case you have PST file of 6 GB then you can divide it into 4 files of 1.5 GB, for this you will have to provide size as 1.5 GB.

Split by Date: This option is extremely important if user wants to divide the emails according to date. A job changeover can be a practical reason for this type of split. If you want to keep the emails from different work hubs separately then you can choose this option and provide the date. This will in turn create two PST files one will contain email data belonging to the date and prior to that date. Another PST file will have email data after the date.

Split by Year: This option is another prominent option as it allows dividing the PST file according to the year. You will automatically get separate PST files for the years provided. For e.g. if you provide the years like From 2013 To 2014, two separate PST files will be created belonging to these years. This might be very helpful for a graduation student who wants his email data year wise.

Split by Folder: Tool also allows splitting the PST files according to folders of MS Outlook like Sent Items, Inbox, etc. This doesn't mean that folders will be separate out, but a certain folder will not exceed the size limit which is given by you. And as it exceeds, then the rest of the part of that folder will be stored into another PST file.

When I tested the software I had a PST file of around 16 MB which belonged to MS Outlook 2007 application. So I chose;

  • MS Outlook 2003/2007/2010
  • Split by Size

And then clicked Next, you can choose your options as per your requirement.

Step 3: A browser window will open linking to your system to feed the location of PST file. Here you can provide the location of PST file which you want to split. Go to the file and after selecting it click OK.

Step 4: As the file gets attached you will be able to see the location of PST and cross check it if it is correct or not.

Then you can provide the Selected Split Option requirements. Like here, I chose the Split by Size option and hence I have to provide the size according to which the PST file will be divided.

Data to be Provided as per Following Options;

  • Split by Size- Size in MB
  • Split by Folder- Size in MB
  • Split by Year- Select Years in From_ & To_

Note: In case incorrect password is provided, software will not continue further processing.

Step 10: Software also provides an option to save a complete log of division made as a CSV file using which you can compare the initial and resulting PST files.
Outcome â The Pluses and Minuses:

Mainstream users belonging to IT industries can be benefited by this software to keep a control on the over-sizing PST files. As this overgrown files result in poor emailing in turn affecting the production.

Various splitting options are very helpful as user can make his own choice as per his requirements and the data available in PST file. Split PST works on all the data items like emails, tasks, calendars, contacts, etc. and hence is a versatile tool with a reasonable Price $49.

The only point where tool lags which actually can be called as scope of improvementâ is software will not split the data items in different PST files like one PST file for emails only, one PST file for contacts, and so on.

Overall the toolâs performance is tremendous and the outcome results are accurate to great extent. Data integrity is maintained and as tool creates different fresh PST files with divided data, there are no chances of harm to original PST file. With a proper testing of software I will rate this software 4.7/5 and will definitely recommend the software to Outlook users.
