PST data cannot be accessed

I am trying to open a PST that I know contains info since the properties displays a full folder structure and the size of the file is over 100mb.

yet when i open it, all the folders are empty.. it contains 4 folders:

all public folders
deleted
IPM_SUBTREE
search folders

all are empty but the IPM_SUBTREE contains many subfolders which i cannot see in the mail folder tree structure.

any ideas

oranco,

PST file could be corrupt. Recover Damaged Outlook PST File
ScanPST

OR

PST file is found in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder.  It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden files. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.
