Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We’ve had a similar problem and we were  able to solve it with OutlookFIX, maybe this tool can help you. However i agree with the first thing you must do is “quit all mail enabled applications use the inbox repair tool to diagnose repair errors in the file”.

    Yes, on the third pass it stops a 76 percent and tells me to run scandsk. I don't have scandsk but have run chkdsk It completes but I get the same results with scan.pst

    Sounds like you have some bad hard drive sectors that need to be fixed. In chkdsk, use automatically fix file system erros and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. You will have to reboot the machine before it runs. This is a very time consuming task, so have it run overnight.

    If the microsoft tool doesn't work you need to get a professional application. You can try Stellar Phoenix software which has worked for me in the past.

    I had this issue too, where the scan pst file did not complete because of corrupted files in the deleted folder.  Scan pst would hang at about 76% and not complete.  Chkdsk / scandisk would not repair it either.  I had to manually delete some very old unread files out of the deleted folder, I discovered this when I attempted to mark are read and it told me which ones where corrupted, so then I could manually delete them.  I was then able to use scan pst to repair the rest of the PST File.

    Try using the Microsoft office Cd-rom or Outlook 2010
