Confirmed in SP2. I can run scanpst against my outlook, archive, imap, and

hotmail PSTs and generate several "AMap page ... has csFree of x, but should

have been y" errors per scan. Not only that, I can repair the same file two

or three times and continue to get errors without even opening Outlook.

Eventually it does resolve everything and subsequent scans cause no errors

until Outlook is opened again and touches the files. Then the process starts

again.

PST seems to be a fragile format based on my interactions over the past

decade. I think it's time Microsoft just switched to a real lightweight

database install. They install SQL Server compact edition for something as

silly as Live Photo Gallery. Perhaps it's time to do this for Outlook as well.

The same thing happens to me.

I have a 400KB .pst file that is fine under Outlook 2007 SP1, but the new

Scanpst in SP2 finds numerous errors with it. If I run Scanpst 3 times on

the file, it will finally show up with No Errors Found, but then as soon as

Outlook is run with a Send/Receive, the errors will display again. These are

the same "AMap page ... has csFree of x, but should have been y" errors"

noted above.

I believe the errors don't show up until a Send/Receive is run.

I notice that after Outlook touches the file and it gets 'corrupted' again,

it also gets larger and I need to run a compaction to reduce the size back to

normal.

I wonder if the Outlook Connector 12.1 needs to be uninstalled and

re-installed?

Is the new Scanpst buggy?

I have no email antivirus installed. I do have Itunes installed but

disabled their COM add-in and the same thing happened.

I've gone back to SP1 in the meantime until this is sorted out.

Allan: i have the exact same problem that Lucent describes. frequent imap,

bbt, etc errors. i've tried formatting hdd and starting a new pst file. but

still lots of errors exactly as Lucent described.

You suggested going back to sp1. did this work for you?

funny thing: i wasted 1hr 35min with MS tech support regarding this. their

recommendation was "backup the file frequently".

I have been running SP2 for a while now. I haven't run SCANPST and have

experienced no problems.
