Data File did not close properly.


M

Marko

Starting Outlook 2007, I get a message:

"A datafile did not close properly last time it was used and is being
checked for problems".

It takes a minute for Oulook to start and then the system is slow for a few
more minutes while that file is still being checked and then a message pops
up telling me that the file check is complete.
Doing a Google on the problem it would appear that it's prevalent but I
don't see a fix for it.
Is there anything I can do other then going back to Office 2003?

I've seen two fixes. Repair your PST file manually. Make sure you exit
Outlook completely and that you have no add-ins that will keep it from
exiting completely.

Thanks! I had done the repair with scanpst.exe. Subsequent scans came up
error free. The problem is still there.
Exit completely? I shut down Outlook and the next time I start it up again I
get that same message and delay.
I had just installed Office 2007 on a newly formatted Hdd and have no
add-ins that I'm aware of.
Outlook 2003 worked fine before.

Verify Outlook has exited completely.
How did you migrate your data to this new installation?

The file was imported a year ago from Outlook Express into Outlook 2003 and
recently taken over by Outlook 2007.
No problems ever in Outlook 03.
For indexing I find the following:
On the Tools menu, point to Instant Search, and then click Indexing
Status.<
"Indexing Status" does NOT exist. It doesn't exist in the Control Panel
under Other Control Panel Options either.
Looks like I need to dig deeper into that area.

"Recently taken over by Outlook 2007" seems an odd statement. What does it
mean? So does your claim that you clicked an option that you then claim does
not exist. We await clarification.

1)When I installed Office 2007 it automatically used the existing pst from
Office 2003 (If I remember correctly) Therefore my statement that 07 "took
over" the existing file. In any case it's the same file that I had used in
03. If not done automatically then I must have used the IMPORT option from
the File menu.
2) Checking in Office 07 help for "indexing" I'm given these instructions:
"On the Tools menu, point to Instant Search, and then click Indexing
Status." Indexing Status does not exist in that location.
Searching further I find instructions for finding "Indexing Status" in the
Control Panel options. It does not exist there either.

I read that "Microsoft's Live One Care" is causing this problem in Outlook
07 when installed under Vista.
In my case it's installed under Win XP home SP-2 and I don't think that I
have Live One Care.

I think I've got it figured out.
I ran Outlook.exe with the /safe command line switch.
It runs without a hitch. In my case it ask me if I wanted ther RSS feed
sync. I don't even know what that is and so said no.
It's been running without the file data delay and message since. There is
obviously a problem with Outlook 07 that needs fixing.
Anyway, thanks for all the help here.

You did an upgrade installation. You must always create a new profile from

Create a new Outlook 2007 data file also couldn't solve the problem. Because
I also have same problems as Marko and I also done as Marko did. I have
monitor the Outlook 2007 closed properly with Task Manager, after restart
Outlook, it pop me with the same error message.

Any idea?

Thanks! I had done the repair with scanpst.exe. Subsequent scans
came up error free. The problem is still there.
Exit completely? I shut down Outlook and the next time I start it
up again I get that same message and delay.
I had just installed Office 2007 on a newly formatted Hdd and
have no add-ins that I'm aware of.
Outlook 2003 worked fine before.

I've seen two fixes. Repair your PST file manually. Make sure
you exit Outlook completely and that you have no add-ins that
will keep it from exiting completely.

Starting Outlook 2007, I get a message:

"A datafile did not close properly last time it was used and
is being checked for problems".

It takes a minute for Oulook to start and then the system is
slow for a few more minutes while that file is still being
checked and then a message pops up telling me that the file
check is complete.
Doing a Google on the problem it would appear that it's
prevalent but I don't see a fix for it.
Is there anything I can do other then going back to Office
2003?

I think I've got it figured out.
I ran Outlook.exe with the /safe command line switch.
It runs without a hitch. In my case it ask me if I wanted ther RSS
feed sync. I don't even know what that is and so said no.
It's been running without the file data delay and message since. There
is obviously a problem with Outlook 07 that needs fixing.
Anyway, thanks for all the help here.

I read that "Microsoft's Live One Care" is causing this problem in
Outlook 07 when installed under Vista.
In my case it's installed under Win XP home SP-2 and I don't think
that I have Live One Care.

1)When I installed Office 2007 it automatically used the existing
pst from Office 2003 (If I remember correctly) Therefore my
statement that 07 "took over" the existing file. In any case it's
the same file that I had used in 03. If not done automatically then
I must have used the IMPORT option from the File menu.
2) Checking in Office 07 help for "indexing" I'm given these
instructions: "On the Tools menu, point to Instant Search, and then
click Indexing Status." Indexing Status does not exist in that
location.
Searching further I find instructions for finding "Indexing Status"
in the Control Panel options. It does not exist there either.

"Recently taken over by Outlook 2007" seems an odd statement. What
does it mean? So does your claim that you clicked an option that
you then claim does not exist. We await clarification.

The file was imported a year ago from Outlook Express into Outlook
2003 and recently taken over by Outlook 2007.
No problems ever in Outlook 03.

Indexing Status.<
"Indexing Status" does NOT exist. It doesn't exist in the Control

Well I did the new profile thing and initially it seemed to work fine with
the empty outlook.pst file.
Then did another scanpst.exe on the old file and substituted in for the
newly created one. The old problem was back immediately.
Next I'll go back to a new outlook.pst and see if I can import from the old
one.
Wow, who would have thought it could be so time consuming to upgrade to
Office 2007.

This time I started with a new profile once again, then copied the messages

Then did the Scanpst.exe and it found errors and repaired them.

on two other machines and ran into the exact same problem there. We'll now
go back to Outlook 03 on all but my home machine where I will continue to

"A datafile did not close properly last time it was used
and is being checked for problems".

It takes a minute for Oulook to start and then the system
is slow for a few more minutes while that file is still
being checked and then a message pops up telling me that
the file check is complete.
Doing a Google on the problem it would appear that it's
prevalent but I don't see a fix for it.
Is there anything I can do other then going back to
Office 2003?
