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.

You can try the Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair Technician version also. Along with repairing PST file, software provides option to Split & Compact PST file before saving.

Please check more information of software from here: https://www.stellarinfo.com/advanced-outlook-repair.php
