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

PST file is also known as Personal Storage Table file and used to store the e-mail messages, contacts, notes, task and other items of an user. There are many benefits of creating PST file such as:

1) It works as a backup copy for your important data.
2) To keep data as PST file before Outlook/Server get damaged/crashed. You can easily restore it from backup and then use the data in MS Outlook.
3) It can help to avoid data loss situations.
4) You can easily recover your accidentally deleted emails or any other item in MS outlook by restoring it.

Thanks

    Be careful when moving your .pst file to local disk storage (i.e.: your C: drive) if this is your work PC because many companies do not backup local C: drives and you do not want to lose your Outlook .pst file and not be able to get it back. Here is a helpful link that explains the PST file in more detail along with the do's and dont's - http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/backupandrestore.htm
