Microsoft Outlook 2010 error..."Outlook.pst" is not an Outlook data file (.pst)
Posted on 2014-04-21
Came into work this morning and attempted to open my email (Outlook 2010). Got an error message that 'Outlook.pst is not an Oulook data file'. Following a suggestion, I deleted the profiles key in the registry. Upon opening Outlook it made me create a new account. I did so and it works fine, but all my prior email/contacts/calendar are in the other data file that won't open. I tried adding it to my list of data files but am still getting the error message. My new Outlook.pst file is under .../My Documents whereas my old file was under .../Local Settings/Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook. How can I get my data back?
