Not a Personal Files Folder ??
Posted on 2011-04-25
I recently recreated a users profile. Before doing anything I copied the users original profile to an external hard drive. I chose to show all hidden files and folders to make sure I got everything.
After the deletion and recreation of the profile, I moved everything back but the archive.pst file was not there. I ran a recovery tool, found two archive.pst files that got deleted and recovered both back to the computer. Only one would open as an Outlook Data file. But it's the other one I want and I only get the error "The file * is not a personal files folder".
File is not set to read-only; I've tried scanpst.exe, and Advanced Outlook Repair tool (demo) and nothing will repair it.
Is there anything else I can try? File is about 500mb.
