Afaik this is in no way supported, but you can go over the 50GB limit by changing the corresponding reg keys as detailed here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-my/help/832925/how-to-configure-the-size-limit-for-both-pst-and-ost...

 

The 0x0000C800 value (50 GB) is not a hard limit, but it's the maximum *supported* one.

Simply create it, none of the keys under \Policies are mandatory, only used when needed.
