I have seen several instances with users that have PST files in Outlook 2010 and 2007 that all of a sudden can't access their emails in the PST files. When I go to look at location where the files are kept, I notice that the file size is either 265KB or 65KB. These files are supposed to be 2-5GB in size, and have nothing in them. We can restore the files from our tape backup, but this is the 10th occurance that this has happened. Could this be an issue with our Exchange server, file server, or outlook client? We are using Exchange 2007.
