If you import it aside from trying to open it?
Does that work?
5.8 gig is really big to handle, is there any details you have not mentioned?
Are you moving your PST from one computer to another a new Outlook email client?
or another folder
Archiving is another area to look
you can break up the large .pst file and manually move messages from your large .pst file to another .pst file.
To quickly move one folder from a .pst file into a different .pst file, follow these steps:
Make sure that your large .pst file and the destination .pst file are both open in Outlook.
Right-click the folder in your large .pst file that you want to move to the other (smaller) .pst file, and then click Move Folder.
In the Move Folder dialog box, select the destination .pst file, and then click OK.

Hi I tried the processes recommended above and was able to get the pst to work but unfortunately much of the needed data was unrecoverable, so I broke up the files in into smaller psts with a third party data recovery application called "Stellar Phoenix Windows data recovery tool"  and recovered what I could.
