Corrupt PST Win2K Outlook

  JoJoh 22:23 05 Jun 2006

Hi - I have a corrupt outlook 2000 pst file. I have tried to repair it with the microsoft scanpst but it does not work. In fact the scanpst notes that the file is ok. I have also tried the pst file on another computer and it still will not run. The screen hangs when outlook opens. The file is 1.3gb. Does anyone have any more ideas what I can do to fix it? It ran the first time that I ran the scanpst file but then seemed to get corrupted again. Now the inbox repair kit notes that it is ok and won't even repair it.

Bit of a long shot but run outlook express and see if you can import all the Outlook files into it.

Try renaming it to outlok.pst (don't change the extension at this stage)

Then see if Outlook opens. If it does, then try a File Open for outlok.pst, and see what happens. If by chance it opens, then you can section by section drag the old contents into the new folders.

I went to tucows and searched for pst file repair - and there are at least 5 progs to do that - so you could try some of those.
