unlocking pre-2003 outlook.pst file that has reached its maximum

Not open for further replies.


I imported Personal Files from earlier versions of Outlook into Outlook 2007, but recently got the message "...Outlook (1).pst has exceeded it maximum size..." There are instruction to delete material to shrink the file, but all attempts to delete from the Inbox, Deleted, etc. give rise to the same error message. Although I've created a functioning set of new Personal Files with the new Unicom format, my contacts and other crucial stuff are locked inside the old Outlook (1).pst. Is there any way to get them out?
