Inbox Repair Tool Not Responding

G

Gary D

Outlook 2000 won't work due to outlook.pst being over 2GB. I have used the

PST2GB application to truncate the file as per MS instructions. The scanpst

application runs and scans the truncated file okay, but when I click on

"repair" nothing happens. When I check the windows task manager it says the

application is not responding. It creates a backup file okay, but then

nothing.

Any suggestions?

You sometimes have to truncate several times

I am encountered the same problem, using Windows XP and Office 2007. However,

when I started the scanpst file from theTask Manager it appeared that from

the very beginning the Task M. showed 'not responding', but in reality the

program was running. Overall it took several hours for a .pst file of 3.9 Gb,

but it worked. This is rather confusing and MS should do something about it.

However, when I activated in the meantime another program, the window of the

IRT went blank. I suspect that than the IRT stopped really as I got prompt to

send an error message. Lesson being: once you start running the scanpst don't

touch anything!

If your software is not responding then use the "Inbox repair tool" to repair the Outlook inbox. It is powerful and rebust recovery tool whican repair the emails, drafts, notes, journals, calendars, attachments, images, email data, email tasks, contacts and properties. The way of retrieving the data from a corrupt file is a sequence of operation which includes many steps like scanning, previewing and saving the file into a new file.
