Displaying Outlook Folder Sizes

Outlook 2003 has changed the format of the Personal Folders file. If you're creating a new Personal Folders file for use with Outlook 2003, you're given the choice of creating a new Unicode Personal Folders file or a Personal Folders file compatible with previous versions of Outlook. If you choose the new Unicode Personal Folders file, you're no longer limited to the 2GB maximum size of a Personal Folders file. Your file can actually grow to a size in the terabyte range, although a file that large would have to be stored on a SAN (storage area network) and would probably be incredibly slow. Still, you can easily operate with a Personal Folders file that is upward of 10GB in size. To create a new Personal Folders file, choose File, New, Outlook Data File to display Figure 24.1.
