Windows 7: What to do with my 5GB outlook.pst file?

What to do with my 5GB outlook.pst file?

After around 15 years of appointments, emails and contacts my outlook.pst file is now bigger than 5GB.
It works well, so far. But: how long can I still continue?
For safety reasons I make 2 backups every night...

I have never wanted to (auto-)archive parts of my .pst file.
Simply because if I search for a certain (old) mail I wish to find it in ONE file - and not search in older files.

Is there still a way to keep the best of both: a small file without the risk of a sudden crash, but still with easy search options in older sections?

Thanks for any suggestion!
Wim
