I have 400 GB of files that I need to split and burn on DVDs for HR, but I have few PSTs that are 20+ GB.

How can I split these huge PST files?

Wow, didn't even know it was even possible to create PSTs that big with Outlook 2003 without them getting corrupted all the time! – GAThrawn Oct 19 '10 at 19:04
    
Seems it's possible! Imagine... old laptop w/ 40GO HDD. The user has Windows XP with Office 2003, home software AND 30go OST files! – r0ca Oct 19 '10 at 19:08
    
go == giga octets == giga byte ? (thanks to @DMA57361 chat.superuser.com/transcript/message/18219#18219 ) – Sathya Oct 19 '10 at 20:38
    
In Montreal, Canada, we use GO for size. Gbytes is mostly used for speed. – r0ca Oct 20 '10 at 12:51

Split the files using HJSplit, or create spanning archives using 7zip.
