    Increase Folder Size (Outlook 2000)

    I know there is a way to increase email folder(s) size so they will hold more emails. Anyone know how to do this? Warren

    Try this: Viewing the folder list (View>Folder list), right-click the PST that contains the folders you want to enlarge and choose Properties for <your PST name here>. Click Advanced... then tick Allow upgrade to large tables. Does that do it?

    Allow upgrade to larger files is not a selectable item. I found it, but it is greyed out? Any ideas? My outlook 2000 is set up as IMO if that makes any difference? I know I was able to increase file size on my old computer, but I can't remember how. Warren

    What SR/SP do you have installed? Mine's SR-1 9.0.0.5414 (which really is SP2 including the mail security fixes).

    I did not add the last security fix as it has a conflick with an add-in we have. Mine is SR-1 9.0.0.3823.

    Warren, for IMO mode (and you do not have a separate PST from the PST containing the default Folders such as Inbox, etc.), is it also greyed out if you right click "Outlook Today", select Properties, Advanced?

    Using your input of "Allow upgrades to large tables" I found a Knowledgebase article # KB197430 http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;197430 The reason the larger file option is not available on my machine it that it was already chosen. The reason I can't move files into the folder it that there are over 64,000 emails in it. I can't make the folders any larger and I thought I could. I guess I will make a database to hold the information. One advantage will be much faster searches in the database!!! Thanks for the help!
