Using windows 7 32bit & Office 2007 with Outlook. Had a recent back of my HD and encountered a crash, installed a new HD into Computer and a full reinstall of everything, but when trying to import my backed up Outlook.pst file I get an error that "outlook.pst is not a personal folders file". I have also tried File, Open, Outlook data file and receive the same error message.
Tried to use Scanpst.exe and I received the same type of error "Inbox Repair Tool does not recognize the file. C\Users\Sunny\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst. No information can be recovered." This file is over 2GB and I have to recover.
I have reviewed over 31 posts and replied to a few that were similar or same issues and no response as of yet. I saw a mention of "try using third-party Outlook PST Repair Tools, but the link returned a 404 error, page not found.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thank you in advance for your assistance,
