    AS you moved this one to new laptop, have you tried to open the same in your old laptop (still if you have this old one) ! As you tried with scanpst but there was no good result ! it seems that, the procedure of moving/ copying might be wrong or you did some mistake, all are assuming. Please navigate, if this can help you: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/272227

    I think your PST file gets corrupted due to any internal issue so you are unable to open emails. You should use a strong PST repair application to repair your corrupt PST file. Many PST recovery programs are available in online market that can be used for the same tasks such as: SysTools Outlook Recovery, Recovery Tools for MS Outlook and PCVITA Recover Outlook etc. Check out demo editions of application choose one of them according to your need.  For more utilities you can search “Outlook PST recovery” on Google.

    Good luck :)

    Hi lyonsmichael78,

    “Cut and Copied” is not a valid way to move PST files from one location to another because sometimes it can create errors in the copied PST data or make it inaccessible after moving. Microsoft Outlook provides Export feature which is a really safe way to move PST Files.

    About third party utilities: Every third party utility has built up accordingly their algorithm to handle corruption, so it is not necessary that if a specific tool has failed to repair data file then PST file can’t be repaired. There are also some other tools which can help you to revert back these data, such as SysTools Outlook Recovery, PcVita, etc.

    Note: Recommendations for any specific third party utility is on behalf of my personal experience, so which fits on need.

    Use the Inbox Repair tool. Provide the path and the file name of your personal folders (.pst) file and then click Start. After repair you should now see the recovered folders in the Folder List view.
