Archive PST File Issue

markkindred used Ask the Experts™
My Archive file in outlook 2007 wont open or expand. A small error message appears saying that this file cannot be expanded.
If i cancel the message i can carry on working on outlook but just can't open the archive folder.

I believe this is due to the size of the archive pst file. (9gb)

Is there anyway of getting this file to open so i can move the emails i need out of it?

I have tried running scanpst.exe on this pst file but it just crashes  

Any Help would be aappreciated
