Hi everyone, 

I have a problem with Outlook 2007. I am trying to import a data file that I have placed on my desktop called outlook.pst. I am getting an error message stating " C:...outlook.pst is not an Outlook data file (.pst).

The Outlook.pst is outlook file but its saying is not and outlook file. Is there anything wrong? That sounds weird. ScanPST.exe after launch, says that can't repair the file.

Please post if you have any suggestion. Thank you.


Software/Hardware used:
Microsoft Outlook, Windows

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

If you
are getting a message that the PST is not an Outlook Data File, then chances
are whatever process you used to move that PST to the PC’s desktop has damaged
that PST and Outlook will not be able to use it. 

Microsoft
provides a free scanpst.exe tool to repair an Outlook PST file.

For
More info about scanpst.exe:- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287497

If this
tool does not help to then go Google “(PST OR Outlook) recovery”.

Thanks & Regards
