If i delete the contents of my Deleteditems folder, the .pst file still remains the same size as the items"deleted" from the Deleted items folder are still present somewherewithin the pst file. I recall there is a way to completely delete these items in order to reduce the size of thepst file but forget how. Anybody know how to do this?
