MS Outlook checking for problems

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
"Every once in a while Outlook 2007 just kind of shuts down and when it restarts it says : The data file (Outlook Data Folder) was not closed properly.  The file is being checked for problems" and it seems to take forever, like 17-20 minuites and/or it freezes.  Any tips on how to avoid this and/or what to do when it freezes while checking the file?
