Outlook 12 PST file hang

Posted on 2009-04-12

I have on XP SP3 Rus installed MS office 12 with business contact manager for outlook. In outlook i have 3 pst files (1,2,3 for simplicity) and 1 BCM database. For some time the 3 pst files worked fine, but now each time i try to open 3 pst file outlook hangs. The other two work fine and new pst files also work fine. So the problem must be in that exact pst file. I tried cleaning profile, scanning that file with scanpst.exe, renaming the file and none of this worked. What else can i  try and uncorrupt the file?

Thanks everyone for all the comments, i finally solved this by moving the file to another PC and importing the data there.
