List all .PST files on a computer

This article will explain you how to list all .PST files on a computer.


Many folks use .PST file with Outlook, so do I and I found this short cut to list all the .PST files in your hard drive. This is achieved by a single command;


CMD: Dir /b /s /d Your_Drive:\*.pst >List_All_PST.txt


This command will search for *.PST in Your_Drive. Replace Your_Drive with your drive ‘C’ or ‘D’.


To automate this task, you can run a batch file as shown below;



@echo off
Echo This batch file will give a list of all .PST files on a computer.
Echo Save this file as “List_All_PST.cmd”

Pause
@echo on
dir /b /s /d D:\*.pst >List_All_PST.txt
List_All_PST.txt
Pause
