When I try to open Outlook 2007, I receive the following error message:
Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook.
Cannot Open the Outlook window.
The set of folders cannot be opened.
The file C:\Users\Andy\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook,pst is not a personal folders file.
When I check the outlook.pst file,  I find th the size of the file is ZERO bytes.
Does anyone have any ideas on on to recover the outlook.pst file?
