When Using Outlook 2007 a User cannot open their archive pst folder periodically.
We Run scanpst.exe and archives  become accessible but become corrupted again after opening outlook again.

We are running exchange 2010 sp3 and we have no local outlook pst files on the terminal server.

This is happening with users that have:
both large and small archive pst files
both single and multiple logins active

When we are sure only a single login is being used and Outlook is successfully closed, the OUTLOOK.EXE*32 process for the user is still running and we must manually end process before able to run scanpst.exe on the archive.pst file

When Outlook closes, it has to scan the PST file for errors.  The process will keep running in the background until this is complete.  The larger the PST or when they are on network drives means the longer it will take for this to complete.  When we have this problem with users, we get their data migrated to an Online Archive folder and remove their PST files.
