What version of Outlook are you using?

It's possible the .PST file is corrupted...you can try to fix it using the following steps.


But BEFORE you do this...MAKE A BACKUP COPY!!!!

Outlook 2016 can handle up to 50 GB. So yes, test for PST corruption

If ScanPST does not fix the issue, then try Stellar Tools PST recovery.
