Outlook file recovery

I have used a file recovery tool to recover some archived e-mail files. The recover has worked and the .pst file is sitting nicely looking at me. When I open outlook and select open> outlook data file> and then browse to my recovered file I get an error message telling me the file (location is shown) is not a personal folders file.

The contents of these mails are really important so I'm having a bit of a panic

I found an exact same Q on the forum. Seems my file is beyond help.

have you tried the "inbox repair tool"? its SCANPST.EXE

Look for it in C:\program files\common files\system\mapi\1003

You will need to import the data.
File/import and export/select the file where your data is stored
