I have a number of old archive PSTs (6) that I need to merge and remove any duplicate items (contacts, email messages, etc). Once this is done, I'll be burning them to a disc for archival purposes, but will not need regular access to them.


Can anyone suggest a good approach to this?

I'm lazy... I'd just burn them to disk. Otherwise, create a new nomail profile and attach one pst file - if none are in the new unicode format, use the pst the profile wants to create for you. Import all of the pst files, run a duplicate checker... close all of the old pst files.

If you burn the pst to a disk, you'll need to copy it to the hard drive before you can open it.

Oh, and if you need suplicate remover tools, our host has a list here: http://www.slipstick.com/addins/duplicates-addins/duplicate-remover-tools-for-outlook/

You could also create a new Outlook profile and import them one at a time making sure to select do not import duplicates. Once imported you would be able to export as one .pst file.
