I have a back-up file (~ 3.3 GB) of Outlook 2007 from crashed hard drive .

When I try to import PST file I get the following message: "Errors have been

detected in the file" Tried Scanpst.exe to no avail.

When I try to open directly from the recovered file using Outlook I get a

message that the "attachment size exceeds the allowable limit"

Suggestions on how to import/repair PST file would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Is this backup a copy of a pst file or was it created with some backup

software?

Is this file located on the current hd?

Are you opening it within OL via File>Open?

Hi DL-

It is a b-up copy of a pst file. Yes, the file is located on the current HD

in a recovered files folder on my laptop desktop. Have tried to import pst

file as well as to open from OL two different ways via File-Open.

Thank you for your time and interest in helping me resolve this issue.

A little more clarification.........the b-up is sitting on the desktop of the

new hd I installed in my laptop in recovered files folder. I also have the

old hd and it too has a b-up copy on it.

Did scanpst report no err's even if run several times?

If you have access to the old drive copy any data files to Documents folder,

then try opening within Outlook

Thanks for the support. Nothing seems to be working so I may have to seek

the help of local computer data recovery company even though I know costs can

be very significant.

Instead of importing the file try and take that back up file and put it in the file

where it belongs

Thanks. I will try to do that. I believe that the problem is that the

recovered file is corrupted and finding a solution so the data can be read

has eluded me thus far.

Thanks for the suggestion, Peter.
