I've been told that I should not use scanpst every time I have a slowing with Outlook ? Is it possible to use this too often?

I don't recommend using it as part of other routine tasks (like making a backup or emptying the trash) because it can introduce problems - and will always find something to fix.

In your case, it's hard to say if it does more harm than good. If you are in a position where you need to use it often, you should make a new data file.
