There are quite a few out there from Free to $49.95. So price isn't an issue as much as which one can do the job. I need to gather and save all the attachments from several years worth of Email that is saved into several hundred PST files. It would be nice to be able to run the program on the whole directory just once and have it dump all the attachments found into folders named after the PST they came from.
There must not be a big demand for anything like this as there doesn't seem to be a lot of opinions on which one, if any, is worth the price. The ones offering the "Free Trial of 10" look just like the ones that say Free ..Period. The only one I have found that seemed to actually do anything was a Free script hosted on Source-Forge. I would not mind paying for something made to do this and do a good job of it.
It is a simple straightforward need and I just wondered if anyone out there has tried any of them and could give me an opinion of whether they work, or just make a mess of things. There is no need to cut out the attachment, I just need to make a copy of each attachment saved in a folder and leave the PST intact. This is part of an effort to archive emailed documents separate from the stored email files not a need to reduce the size of the PST in use.
Thanks for any advice.
