Outlook PST File has Reached its Maximum Size

Whenever I try to open PST file on Outlook in Windows system I was getting error message stating as “Outlook PST has reached its maximum size error” making data inaccessible. Don’t have any idea about this issue. Can anyone suggest me to fix this issue? So please help me out!!!

If .pst file is oversized then Outlook takes long time to respond and open or sometime you may encounter error message  like “The file abc.pst has reached its maximum size” “abc.pst cannot be accessed – 0×80040116.” , “Error in Background Synchronization”, “Reported Error 0x00040820” etc.

You can fix “Outlook PST has reached its maximum size error” message by using manual method i.e.  Inbuilt Scanpst. Exe Repair Tool:

  • Click ‘Start’ then ‘Run’
  • Type the location path of the Inbox Repair Tool ( usually stored at drive name:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\Locale ID\scanpst.exe) and then click “OK”
  • Click on “browse” button to choose the oversized PST file
  • Click on “Start” button to test the selected files for errors
  • Choose the destination location to save the backup file
  • At last initialize the repair process by pressing on “Repair” button, so that the oversized PST file can be repaired
