Cannot access archive folders. An unknown error has occured, error code:0x80040119

I am using outlook 2002. I have my personal folder and archive folder configured in outlook . Until yesterday it was working fine . I noticed today that I cannot access my archive folder from outlook. When I physically checked the file it is showing file size as zero KB. When I tried to remove and add this data file from outlook properties it is giving error message An unknown error has occured, error code:0x80040119.

Please help

Sunray,

When I try to do Inbox repair using scanpst it says "The file cannot be recovered because it is not large enough to contain any useful data". Obviously the file size is showing 0KB now. But I have lot of my mails in it

Perhaps the pst file has been zeroed off by a virus. If this is so, searching the web for recovery tools to un-erase the file might help...

JackNaif,

Any tools you know of or any website address were the tools are available

Well... you can always try with the unerase wizard of Norton Anti Virus, or with Norton Disk Editor which is an oldie, but it's good enough for FAT disks.

Try: http://www.upgradingandrepairingpcs.com/articles/2002/upgrade12_02_04.asp for more info on NDE.

Now this is risky, and I don't recommend you doing it unless you know very well what you're doing, but sometimes, to get a zeroed file to be recovered by this utilities, you will need to erase it first (Ouch!) And you still have no warranty that by doing that you aren't making things worse. So be VERY carefull. Use this trick only as a last resort, when all else has failed. It can really make things worse.

I remember having read about a tool specifically concieved for recovering files zeroed off by some virus... but it was quite a time ago, and I can't find it again. =(

I'm sorry I can't do better for you.
