When I open outlook 2007, i get an error message saying there's a problem with the pst file and Scanpst should be run.  I've run it but it gets to the last step and says the repair can't be completed.  The file is 2.1 GB. I also ran the pst2gb to decrease the size of the file, but there continues to be a problem.  Any ideas on how I can correct this problem.  I've looked at software products to purchase/download but most don't specify Office 2007 and haven't gotten a reply from their tech support.
