PST in non-unicode format will run in aover-2GB problem. Seeing this http://www.datanumen.com/aexr/problems/2gb-ost.htm

What u need to do is:

If you have Outlook 2003 or higher versions installed on your local computer, then you can convert the oversized OST file into a PST file in the new Outlook 2003 unicode format, which doesn't have the 2GB limit any more. This is the preferred method.

If you only have Outlook 2002 or lower versions installed, then you cansplit the oversized OST file into several smaller PST files. Each PST file contains a portion of the data in the original OST file, but it is less than 2GB and independent from each other so that you can access it separately with Outlook 2002 or lower versions. This method is a little inconvenient as you need to manage multiple PST files after the split operation. And you still need to face the headachy oversized problem when any PST file reaches 2GB later.

Use Advance Exchange Recovery can do this.

Hope to help.

Jim
