PST files won't open


G

Guest

I have 3 PST files that were created by someone else.
They are each less than 40MB and all have the correct .pst
extention. When I try to open any of them (they sit on my
hdd) Outlook tells me "The file is not a personal folders
file". I am running Office 2003 Pro. Any ideas?

Cheers and Thanks.

Are these pst-files on your harddisk and have you verified that the "Read
Only" file attribute isn't checked. Connect to it by using File-> Open->
Outlook Data File... If it's still not working use scanpst.exe to scan the
file for errors.

I verified that the file is not read only. I will try
that scanpst.exe to check the file.
