Hello,

 

I have a old pst file which is ANSI format. As it has a size limit of 2 GB, I want to convert ANSI PST to unicode PST File just as my outlok 2010 pst file. How can I do that easily?

 

Thank you.

Hi,Arran

 

For that,you can create a PST file in Unicode format and then move all items from the PST file in ANSI format to the new file manually.

 

Or, you can also use VBA to covert it. Here is a sample you can try:

 

Private Sub ConvertANSIToUnicode()

Dim objSourceFileFolders As Outlook.Folders

Dim objFolder As Outlook.Folder

Dim objNewPSTFileFolder As Outlook.Folder

 

'Create a new PST file in Unicode format in your preferred local folder

Outlook.Application.Session.AddStoreEx "E:\NewPST1.pst", olStoreUnicode

Set objNewPSTFileFolder = Session.Folders.GetLast()

 

'Get all the folders of the source PST file which is in old ANSI format

'Change the "Personal" to the display name of your own PST file

Set objSourceFileFolders = Outlook.Application.Session.Folders("Personal").Folders

 

For Each objFolder In objSourceFileFolders

objFolder.CopyTo objNewPSTFileFolder

Next

End Sub

PST Upgrade is the advanced windows utility that effectively upgrade Outlook email client from old to new and new to the old version. The utility quickly convert ANSI to Unicode and Unicode to ANSI in a safe mode without alteration on the original PST files.
