Cant Open Otlook Archive file

When trying to open an archive file that has been created by a user it seems to come up with an error. I have attached a screen shot showing the message.  The file was created on a previous machine, the machine has been replaced with a new one and since doing this the file is in accessible  unless you load outlook up as an administrator. Please could anyone help.

This is a permissions issue, if you go onto the right click properties menu of the pst file then to security then to advance you can reset the owner of the file here.

Please then proceed to delegate the permissions in the security box for the users you want to be able to use this PST.

PST files are protected by permissions by default.
As administrator, right click on that file and in security settings Advanced, Take ownership of the file. Then change the permissions by adding whatever user(s) and at least Read and Change(Write) security privileges to them.

Then this is not being done correctly.
Give the user full control in the security box, failing that as a test give everyone full control in the security box to prove it actually works.

Open the Archive as Administrator and be sure it is what you expect. Then export it into a new Archive file (new name) on your machine. Now see if the new file opens normally.
@Mark Bill: "Stay classy Sstory. " I'm not sure what that means, but it looks like I was posting near that same time as you . When I started writing there were no posts.

Start button, accessories, right click Command Prompt, Run as Administrator

in the prompt type cacls "c:\users\npritchard\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Personal Folders(1).pst

(Making sure path is in double quotes and correct, hit enter to execute and paste the output here.)

HK , install this on a computer 

I actually have this on a few servers, brilliant tool it automates calcs, takeown commands and some others and will work on any file folder shared directory anything.
i.e. main reason i use it is for huge share drives that contain loads of folders sub folders and permission sets. it can take ownership of like infinite number of files folder etc.

If you do takeown on the file it will reset owner and permissions to the localadministrators group on the computer its being run from. Then just add the permissions you want from there.

Used a program called 'SysTools Outlook Recovery', exported the PST's and everything is fine.
