    I have 40 GB Outlook PST file and need to split it into smaller parts according to year. I have tried manual procedure but this is tricky and lengthy procedure. I just want to know the other way to do same task. I don't want any commercial solution as someone already suggested me to try Outlook PST splitter (http://www.filefixutility.com/outlook-pst-splitter/) but this is paid utility. Is Microsoft provide any utility for same like scanpst.exe to recover corrupted items?

    My friend told me to try these steps but this is lengthy process to split pst file year wise.
    • Choose the PST file that you want to split from the File menu and click Archive
    • In the Archive dialog box, click select archive this folder and then sub folders and a folder from the list
    • From Archive items drop down list click a date
    • And then browse to give the path and name to the new folder. Click OK.
    • Click Move to Folder feature to move items to new PST file
    • File menu New Outlook data file Office Outlook PST and OK
    • Specify the display name of the PST file
    • Ensure that the new folder is selected and click OK
    Any help would be appreciated.
