Cannot get into Outlook 98 today. Still have my PST file, but
Outlook cannot see it. Ran Norton Ulilities and got

Thanks for feedback. Previosusly reinstalled outlook. Did not help.
Links also do not really appear to address this problem.

There is no problem in opening outlook. It opens fine. It just cannot access the pst file.
When Outlook opens get error message: 'Cannot start the reminder service. Unable to show reminders. The file ........pst could not be accessed"

When I try point Outlook to the file (file/open etc), it cannot see my windows folder. All folders and files are visible, ie none are hidden. Can see the pst file in windows explorer, but outlook cannot see it. Cannot copy the pst into another folder (eg My Documents), because it says it is being used by another process. But outlook is not open when I get this message so not sure what's writing to the file.  

Weird

Ok, have fixed it.
PST file was corrupted.
Had to run first run Scan Disc to repair disc problems, then ran Inbox Repair tool.
Thanks
