Specs: Windows XP

My current .pst file is huge, it has many years in it. I want to start a new .pst file, but don't know how I can export all my recurring events from the current calendar to the new one.

File, Import and Export, Export to pst file, select Calendar, Next, browse to the path where your current pst file is, and assign a filename, Ok, Finish, OK.

The next steps will depend on what version of Outlook you have. These instructions are for 2003.

Close Outlook, Control panel, Mail, Data Folders, Add, Select the top option, OK, browse to the same path and select the newly created file, OK, OK, Close.

E-mail Accounts, View or change existing accounts, Deliver new email to the following location: click on the drop down and select the bottom Personal Folders, Finish Close.

Reopen Outlook. You will get a message that the location for your email has changed. Click OK and Outlook will close. Reopen it. New mail will be delivered to the newly created file, and you'll have your copied Calendar entries. You'll also see the old Personal Folder in the list.

I would recommend at some point, going back into the Data Files options, click on the original file, settings, and compact.

That's it. Pretty straight-forward.

Thanks for your help. But what I meant was I don't want to have the same calendar with all the older appointments still there. I want a totally new blank calendar file. The only thing I want it to contain is the recurring items from my old calendar folder which repeat themselves in future dates. To put it another way, it is like I want to split my current calendar in a way that one part starts from today, nothing from previous dates, only the recurring items kept there, and the other part is the dates older than today. Then I use the new one and save the older part just as a reference.

Then you'd create a new pst file, make it the Mail Delivery file, and re-create your recurring events. You can't copy only the recurring events.
