Using the Inbox Repair Tool on files larger than 2GB
Posted on 2005-05-13
I have a pst file which is larger than 2GB. (After contacting my lawyer to find out whether I could sue MS for selling me a product which does not warn me before crashing at a specific limit) I downloaded and ran PST2GB, which reduced the file size to 1,854,417KB. I then ran the Inbox Repair Tool on the file, and got a message saying "Errors were found in this file. To repair these errors, click Repair." I did exactly what the nice people at MS suggested, and clicked Repair. After about 5 minutes, nothing happened, so I did the trusted old CTRL+ALT+DEL, and saw that the Inbox Repair Tool was not responding. I repeated this entire procedure 3 times, without any success. I would GREATLY appreciate any help that would enable me to sort this out and get on with my work!
