Hundreds of PST files into Google...

ArtimisRage
I have a client who has been "self-managing" his IT for the past few years. What this means for me as his new IT guy is he has a hodgepodge of 233 (yes, I typed that right) PST files across 3 hard drives. Apparently he was getting the error about his PST files getting too big so he was making a new PST each time the error came up rather than archiving and clearing out the junk. I have seen digital packrat-ing before, but this is a new extreme. So about a year ago he changed over to an exchange server which he hates and now has all these scattered PST files across all his storage and wants to shift over to Google for his email. I know that they have a PST to Google converter, but he has many dupes which are taking up space across multiple PSTs. I've tried using PSTMerge to try and merge the PST's and remove duplicates to no avail. Any ideas for clearing the clutter? I'm afraid a manual intervention might be my next step... by step... by step...
