The error can occur if the Outlook 2010 profile is configured incorrectly.
To resolve this problem, identify the current location of your default Outlook data file, and then create a new Outlook profile.

i am afraid this did not work.  i will have to continue this tomorrow as it is now late at night - I am in New Zealand.
Outlook looks for Data file ( extension of file = .Pst ) at default location. Did you locate the date file ? If "yes" , than it could be data file corruption, you can also restore the data file you backed up yesterday.
