Well, the PST limitation is due to the ANSI format that the PST file
uses. This format limits the PST file size to 2GB. So, if you have the
PST file that's size is more than its size limit then simply 'split PST
file' ( using any third party software. It
is because there is no such inbuilt utility which can split the PST file
into desired parts.

All the best!

Your PST file is oversized. Microsoft Outlook 2002 and earlier versions limit the size of Personal Folders (PST) file to 2GB. Whenever the PST file reaches or exceeds that limit, you will not be able to open or load it any more, or you cannot add any new data to it. This is called oversized PST file problem.

You can use Advanced Outlook Repair to solve the problem, by either converting it into Outlook 2003 format ( ), or splitting it into smaller pieces ( ) contains the detailed information about Advanced Outlook Repair.
