I have a very large .pst archive email file, which is way too big (more than 40gb).

It has now started cuasing problems, I cannot open it in Outlook.

I should have broken it down into smaller archive files, but never got around to it.

 scanpst.exe cannot fix it, it runs through the 8 stages, and finds issues, but when you go to fix the errors, it fails.

I can no longer open the .pst file from within Outlook.

Is there are more advanced tool to fix the errors?
