Archive.pst won't load or be recreated
Posted on 2008-10-27
This is a question I have asked before without success. But I really need to find a solution.
I have been using Outlook 2007 for some time now and I have come into a problem with my archive.pst file.
This problem goes quite a way back, so I am not 100% exactly when it occured, but it's been several months now and I really miss my mail.
I used to religiously archive all my mail in order to keep my main pst small and lightweight - running smooth. but one day I notices that my archive.pst would not load anymore. I can't get it to mount at all - repair tool says there is nothing wrong with it. I tried restoring a backup of it, but it still will not load. I trie dre-naming it and creating a new outlook.pst, but I cann;t create one, it seems as if one has been created, but when I look in the folder, it is not there.
I really need that mail, there are lots of issues I need to refer back to, and every day I realise more how much I miss those old messages.
Does anyone know any secret Outlook voodoo that can help me get it back?
