Addpst.exe - Outlook Tools for managing PST files in your Outlook Profile

The Addpst.exe tool allows you to add PST services (PST files) to a given e-mail profile. You can add either new or existing PST files to the profile. The file will be created at the specified file location. The PST file can be either in ANSI format (Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File) or UNICODE format (Office Outlook Personal Folders File).

The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

When you run the tool, it requires the following parameters:

  • -p <Profilename> -t <Path to Pst-File> -d <Displayname> -f <a|u> for the pst type: Ansi|Unicode

Here are a couple of example commands to add a PST file to a profile: Add a new Unicode PST file (data1.pst) to a profile called OutlookProfile. The PST displayname in Outlook will be MyNewPst.

  • Addpst.exe -p OutlookProfile -t c:\Data\data1.pst -d MyNewPst -f u

Add a new ANSI PST file (data2.pst) to a profile called Outlook Profile. The PST displayname in Outlook will be Sample pst file. Note the use of quotes when there is a space in the name.

  • Addpst.exe –p “Outlook Profile” –t “c:\My PST Files\new.pst” –d “Sample pst file” –f a

Add an existing Unicode PST file (c:\data\existing.pst) to a profile called OutlookProfile. The PST displayname in Outlook will be MyOldPst.

  • Addpst.exe -p OutlookProfile -t c:\Data\existing.pst -d MyOldPst -f u

If the PST file was added successfully, the following information appears in the command-prompt window:

  • Retrieved message service table from profile: <profile name>
  • Installed Pst Services: <number of pst files of that format in the profile>
  • Added <full path to .pst> as <pst display name> pst to the profile: <profile name>
