Split and Merge Technique isn't a recovery technique of corrupt PST files but it safes user from of its corruption which take place due the reason of large size and when having large number of PST files in Outlook account.
  1. Split Technique is useful when you've large size Outlook PST file and want to break it in some small PST files.
  2. Merge Technique allows user to merge more then one PST files in one single file.

So both are the technique of managing Outlook PST email file. So learn both of them in deeply using the link: Split and Merge Outlook PST file.

Though Microsoft doesn't provide anything to merge PST files into a single file and to split PST file into multiple parts, but still there are few built-in features and functions in Outlook client which enable you to do that. As Outlook is the only thing you needed for this, it would be free. There's no need to purchase any paid solution. I've shared a couple of blog posts below in which you can find complete information:

Merge PST Files into Single File – Excellent Manual Trick

Easy Way to Split PST File into Multiple Smaller Parts

You must try the manual tricks given in the above blog posts before using any paid software.

Microsoft doesn’t provide any tool to merge PST files. Even there’s no built-in feature or function in the Outlook client that can help you merge PST files. However, there’s a built-in Import feature which you can use here. Though it doesn’t merge PST files, you can import the mailbox content from two or multiple PST files into a single file.

Step 1: First, launch Microsoft Outlook on your system.

Outlook Data File window, give a name to this new file.
Click OK to confirm your action.
You can see the new Outlook data file in the navigation pane.
Step 4: On the taskbar, click File tab > Open > Import.
Step 5: On the Import and Export Wizard, select Import from another program or file in the option.

Step 9: Outlook starts importing the selected mailbox folder to new PST file.

Within a few seconds, the process will be completed successfully. Now you can check the new PST file in which you’ll see all the mailbox folders imported earlier from another PST file.

Split PST File into Multiple Parts

Microsoft Outlook stores all your email messages and other mailbox items in an Outlook data file called PST or Personal Storage Table. There are two types of PST files used by Microsoft Outlook: ANSI and Unicode. ANSI PST is used in Microsoft Outlook 2002 and earlier versions. ANSI is the default file format of these Outlook versions and has a size limit of 2 GB. As a result, it can’t store more than 2 GB of mailbox data. While Unicode PST file is used in Microsoft Outlook 2003 and later versions. It’s the default file format of these Outlook versions, and it can store up to 20 GB to 50 GB of mailbox content.
