PST file can not be copied CRC error

Here I have a pc crashed.  I took out the hard drive and connected it to another pc. I located the pst file.  It copies 95% and then says crc error and can not be copied.  Right now I am using chkdsk to fix the hard drive. Can any one help?

Using:

xcopy /c outlook.pst d:

For instance, this copies the file, regardless of the CRC errors that may appear. You are, however, going to end up with a faulty PST file, which you should run scanpst on A COPY of the recovered file.

[Always keep a "clean" copy of the file to be restored, so you can go back to the drawing board, if you mess up the file.]

If scanpst fails to recover the PST file, you can use Advanced Outlook Repair at http://www.datanumen.com/aor/ or other tools at http://www.datanumen.com/aor/compare.htm to do the task.

Remember to work on a COPY of the damaged file! Just that.

Hi, I connected the hard drive to my pc as slave.  Turned it on.  It automatically scanned the slave drive and fixed it.
