If your PST says that its corrupted or exceeded more than 2 gb. Run Repair a 2GB Outlook Personal Folder - PST2GB

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=B33B1DFF-6F50-411D-BBDF-82019DDA602E&displaylang=en

The program will delete some emails to get you under the 2 GB limit.

No Krishna its not the PST which is said to be corrupt it is the recovery tool that i downloaded i am failing to run it. the pst file is okay. the downloaded file is the one failing to run and so i found out that the NCRC message i get ontrying to run the file has something to do with winxp spc2.does this mean if i try using win 98 or 2000 i will succeed or there is something i need to install on my OS for it to have successful downloads pliz assit

Why dont you try downloading the tool again and then try to install the software and see if you are able to get any luck. Bez i am trying on my machine that is windows XP prof with XP2 services pack. May the download might have corrupted.

you just ned to install the software and then run then add the PST file to the program and which will generate the begining 3 letters of the password since its an trial version. if you want to purchase gohead and purchase which will help you to recover the whole password.
