Repair Outlook 2000 PST file

There is no doubt in the fact, that Outlook is the most widely used email client across the world. But this does not mean that it is completely error free and has no limitations. There is a small limitation with the Outlook 2000 version. The limitation is with the size of the PST file. Outlook 2002 and its earlier versions have PST files in the ANSI format. In ANSI format, the size of the PST file is limited to 2GB. Hence in Outlook 2000 too, the PST file size cannot exceed the 2GB limit.


If you are using Outlook and the amount of data transfer that takes place on an average on your Outlook is pretty high, the chances of your PST file size reaching the 2GB limit are more. In the initial stages this results in slowing down of Outlook and reducing the performance to a great extent. If we continue to use the PST file even after the 2GB file size limit has been reached, might result in corruption of the PST file, which might render the data available on the PST file inaccessible.
