Outlook 2007 Service Pack 2 or SP2 is the best solution for those people who are compromising on the performance issue of Outlook 2007. In this new version, the speed is enhanced due to a dedicated storage engine which in turns prevents the application from performing slow due to system crash or corruption in the PST files. Not only this, this new version has increased the reading as well as the writing features of personal storage file up to 3 fold times. As a result of this, this new version takes little amount of time to carry out the aforesaid operations.

Microsoft has also changed the fashion in which the Outlook files are saved. In this SP2 version, the data and information can be easily saved on the hard drive in such a manner that little amount of physical function is involved.

The storage engine optimization of Outlook 2007 SP2 is applied when a complete analysis of the operations is performed and this in turn enhances the speed of the Outlook up to a great extent.

But the biggest demerit or flaw with this improved and new storage engine is that the size of the Outlook PST files is increased considerably. As a matter of fact, the memory or size of the personal storage file can get increased up to 25% if the user is writing any sort of algorithm or program on this new version. Due to this, there are chances that the files can get corrupted and in the due course of time, it would not be possible to access any amount of data from the damaged personal storage files.

In order to prevent such kind of overgrowth problem, it is suggested that people should make the file structure intact especially when the latest service pack is installed on the system. So, when the users make use of the older file structure, there is no chance that the size of the PST file would increase and hence people can easily perform all kinds of their daily work on this new version without any kinds of problem. If there is some problem in accessing the files because of large size, then it is advised to use Outlook Inbox Repair Tool to split the oversized files into smaller ones.
