[QUOTE=zshan000;2469916]well i have dedicated 20 gb of space for archive … i think now i will not need multiple archives files (multiple *.pst files)…[/QUOTE]
Well you could use multiple PST files just for security. If everything is in 1 file, and that file gets broken/corrupt, you loose everything. I have a new PST file for every new year. Older files I hardly look in and it keeps my file size a bit lower.
However, with only a few hundred MBs, you will be safe with 1 file.
[QUOTE=zshan000;2469916]but i just noticed one thing … my hotmail storage says i have used 148 mb of space but my archive is of only 130 mb … is that strange ??? i have not used compact feature of ms outlook also … any one like to comment on this ???[/QUOTE]
Don’t know! Maybe hotmail estimates the storage size differently? Or standard Outlook has a better way of storing the data on the filesystem… no idea
