Greetings, npe511.

Microsoft does not support PST files on network shares and strongly recommends against placing them there.  There are too easily damaged by network connectivity issues.  I understand placing a copy of the archive on a network share, but the user should only access the copy that's on their local PC.

Cheers!

Actually I found out that the size of the archive has exceeded his mailbox limit. Therefore suggest to delete unwanted email and works! I also run the repairing pst tool but didn't detect any fault. That's was a good tool to use! Thanks mass2612. As for BlueDevilFan, I totally agree with you..I will advise the user to access on their local drive. Thanks everyone for your help!
