I've used Outlook 2007 on the same laptop for several years. Suddenly, when I tried to open up today, I received an error message saying the outlook.pst file couldn't be accessed. I can see the file on my computer and all the right permissions seem to be ticked so not sure what to do next.

Verify if Outlook is running in the Compatibility mode using the following steps:

For Windows Vista 64bit:

C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\ > right click on Outlook (.exe)> Properties > Compatibility > uncheck "Run this program in compatibility with" > OK

For Windows Vista 32bit:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\ > right click on Outlook (.exe) > Properties > Compatibility > uncheck "Run this program in compatibility with" > OK

If the above step does not help, restart the computer in Clean-boot and verify if outlook opens without any error.

Note: Restart the computer in normal mode after troubleshooting.
