I cannot view the content of an archive.pst file in Outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an 600 MB archive.pst file that was corupted.

    I used scanpst.exe tool to repaire it. The tool displayed 42 folders and 4000 e-mails and the repair succeded.

    When I try to open or to import it's content in Outlook I see 0 files in 0 folders.

    However if I open it with Kernel Outlook PST viewer I can see all the tree, folders and e-mails.

    If I open another archive file in Kernel I see at the top level of the tree "Top of Personal Folders".

    In the repaired file there is another entry at the top level: "Top of Outlook data file".

    I am not sure if this is the cause of my problems but my qustion is:

    How can I properly open this file in Outlook and have access to my e-mails.

  • Hi AlexNuance,

     

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

     

    It seems an end-user issue here. And we will discuss Outlook develop issue in this forum. I think you will receive better support if you post it in the answer forum.

     

    Have a good day,
