Why to Convert PS to PST?
The PostScript (PS) format is a page description language used mainly in desktop publishing applications. It is a vector-based language, which means that it is resolution-independent and can be scaled to any size without losing quality. On the other hand, the Personal Storage Table (PST) format is a proprietary file format used by Microsoft Outlook to store emails, contacts, calendar items, and other data. PST files are used to back up Outlook data and to transfer data between computers. Therefore, it is necessary to convert PS files to PST format in order to access the data in Outlook.
