Does anyone know if there is a theoretical limit to the number of personal folders permitted within Outlook 2010? Not the size of, but literally the number of. I posed this question to our Corporate Counter Parts as well and the consensus is that there may be. The reason I ask is simple; I ran in to a user who has 278 personal folders of various sizes that were created under Outlook 2003. After he was upgraded to Office 2010, I began restoring his Personal Folders. After restoring about half of the folders I began receiving “Out of memory errors”. Office has been reinstalled twice. The computer is an E6410 with 2GB of RAM and a 160GB Hard Drive.

Personal folders as in pst files? The limit is usually a practical one - finding anything in hundreds of pst files is not fun. I'm not aware of a hard limit, but each one does use resources when loaded, so you might need to add more ram or remove some of the pst files - good candiates for diconnection are ones the user do not access at least once a week.
