PST file corrupt - Scanpst "Not Responding" at repair.
Posted on 2004-08-26
Long story short - before upgrading from Outlook 2000 to 2003, I was importing an archieved pst file to my outlook (before the upgrade) that pushed the file to 2.05gb, causing it to become corrupt (we still upgraded and are now running 2003). When we ran Scanpst at first, we could get through6 of 8 steps, then the program would quit. I was able to reduce the file size to 1.77gb and can get the Scanpst file to complete the process and show us that we have 57 errors on the file. When we hit "repai", Scanpst freezes and "not responding" shows up.
Is there a way to salvage the file. Do I need to do a system retore to essentially take off 2003 and do the work in 2000? All my contacts are on it, as well as recent e-mails that I need. Any help?
