You use the tool scanpst.exe to fix the data file.

You can do a search, make sure you enable the search to go through hidden
files and folders. When scanpst.exe is found, double-click it. Follow the
instructions and it will ask you to browse to your outlook.pst file so make
sure you know where it is. Once you located it, scanpst will run the check
for errors. If it finds errors, run it again. You can repeat until it finds
no further errors.

Outlook must be closed during the scan. Once the scan is complete when no
errors have been detected and repaired, try opening Outlook again.
