a few days ago, Outlook would not launch, error message indicated my .pst file is not a outlook personal folder!

Have been frantically trying to use the repair tool in outlook with no success.

Any suggestions? Of course it is not backed up!! I should know better! ugh!

My first experience many years ago with a computer crash and a young tech appeared on behalf of the company since my regular tech was away ---- transferred all the files to the new hard drive (took three days full time), but DID NOT SAVE my pst file... my address book did not get loaded. Apparently the pst file has to be treated differently. Mine was associated with Outlook Express, not Outlook.
 
 
However, on a re-try, the pst file was able to be retrieved. That was a scary few days for sure.
 
I'm not convinced this situation, Ray, is something a general user can fix himself. Others who are experts of course will give you a better response.

Ray Spitler - I don't know how I can help except to say that you will (should) find your PST file at the path indicated below.

You might want to find out if it exists or not.

Your path may have a different name at the 'owner' spot - like 'administrator' or 'user'

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Good luck
