outlook.pst file corrupted, does not open, where can i find the the inbox repair tool.


When I try to open my outlook I get the message:

Properties to this infomation service must be defined priopr to use.

When I click on OK, the next message is:

Errors have been detected in the file C:/windows/local settings/application data/microsoft/outlook/outlook.pst. Quit all email applications and then use the inbox repair tool.

The problem is that I can nowhere find the "Inbox repair tool". How can I resolve this problem? To make things worse, trying to open the backup I have of this file results in the same error message. Both files seem to be corrupted in a similar way.

What can I do to recuperate the many email exchanges I made starting from the 4th of januari. At that dat I made a general backup and that is the most recent outlook.pst file i can open.
If I cannot open my 2002 outlook, I really have a problem.

What do you advise?

Did you burn your backup on CD?
Is the "read-only" unchecked when you copied it back on HDD?

Just a thought...

Just do a Start->Find->Files, enter scanpst.exe as the file name.  It should be in some folder under Program Files, for example under Windows 2000 with Office 2000, it is at:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\NT\SCANPST.EXE
