    If you're asking about recovering large pst/ost files, it's issue 7.51 from 11/06. Otherwise, can you be a little more specific? There's about 45 issues that mention pst, going back to June of 2000.

    Thanks for your reply. The article you referenced was not the one I was looking for...but it did refer me to the WOMM newletter that contained the info i needed. Thanks again.

    Maybe he pulled it because all the outlook experts thought it was the stupidest recommendation and causes more problems than it fixes? You'll lose custom views, forms etc when you make a new pst and it doesn't really protect you from anything. The full details of what all is lost when you make a new pst are at http://www.slipstick.com The pst is not fragile - i used the same pst for some 3 years (and through 2 betas) without problems.

    it's also not a good idea to use scanpst routinely. It can introduce problems where none exist.
