How do I add/remove PST Files from X1 Search 8?

There are two ways to add PST files to X1. The first, is if the PST is mounted to your Outlook account. If that is the case, then X1 will automatically detect the PST file.

If the PST file is outside of Outlook, please follow the steps below to add a PST file from the Outlook Options screen:

 1. Select Menu>Data Sources.
