You can reduce the file size of an Outlook Data File (.pst) with the compact tool if there are empty spaces in the data file. Empty spaces are resulted from deleted emails or other items.

1. Right-mouse click the data file, for example: "Invoices".

2. Select the "Data File Properties..." in the context menu. The data file properties are displayed with 3 action buttons.

3. Click on the "Advanced" button. Advanced options are displayed.

4. Click on the "Compact Now" button. Outlook starts to compact the data file by removing empty spaces. It will take a few minutes to finish.
