I have Outlook 2007 running on Windows 7.
After rebooting my laptop, Windows 7 ran some repair at start up.
but after I start up, I cannot open my Outlook 2007, I got the message that said:
Cannot open your default e-mail folders. The file c:\Users\PaulT\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst is not a personal folders file.

I went into the folder directory and found out that my Outlook.pst file is 0KB

I think I lost all my email. Can someone please help.
I have POP mail, I only save 1 week of emails on the server.
Thank you in advance.
