A pst folder located on a shared network drive  opens on desktop but not on laptop (error unable to expand folder) .   The laptop is connected to the LAN via patch cable.  The scan pst does not run apparently because the network drive is running out of space (?) Is the pst corrupted, even though it opens on the desktop?

do you currently have the pst open on the other computer? a PST file can only be open by one user at a time.

Try to run SCANPST locally against the local PST file. This is a much better way to do this.

Log in to the other machine, find SCANPST and run it against the PST file.

As noted above, make sure Outlook is closed.

I will retry the scan pst after ensuring the PST on the desktop is closed.   Thank you.

PST file is not designed to be located and accessed from network drive. Otherwise, it will be prone to corruption. See http://www.datanumen.com/articles/prevent-pst-corruption.htm
