Microsoft Outlook 2003 .PST file will not grow above 2 GB

I am running Microsoft Outlook 2003 and my .PST file does not grow above 2 GB. I have read the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: I tried creating a new .PST file and converting it to a Unicode formatted .PST file. Then I migrated my old .PST file to the new Unicode .PST file and I still cannot go above 2 GB. It is my understanding that Outlook 2003 supports Unicode file types, but, in my case, it is not working.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s recommended that You should change PST files name as it reaches to 2GB . Very large PST files tend to corrupt much easier than smaller files. I would recommend splitting the file into a couple of smaller files. If facing problem to repair PST files download PST file recovery software.
