Re: Outlook problem after a scanpst.exe in windows 7

Thanks for valuable advice on the site, I have used to repair a file scanpst.exe outlook. I use 2 email accounts which are in separate boxes in Outlook. Since Scanpst, the mail addresses to the account can no longer defective in the box "normal" (in fact nothing more happens in this club since worry) in the box but the other account. A setting can be a jump but I do not know how. THANK YOU 1000 times your help.

Follow the steps which are mentioned below:
  • Go to the Control Panel -> Classic View -> Folder Options.
  • In "folder option" open tab "View" then check "show hidden files and folders."
  • Restart the computer.
  • Start -> Computer -> C drive -> Users -> name -> Appdata -> local.
  • Open the folder "Local" -> right click -> property.
  • Uncheck "read only" -> apply -> OK. (The analysis starts. Accept the agreement administrator who might be asked).

Re: Outlook problem after a scanpst.exe in windows 7

I had a different approach to fix this error i got the same error message on my system but this was really annoying but after a small research i got this problem fix using the steps below:
  • Start -> Computer -> C drive -> Programs -> Microsoft Office -> Office12.
  • Open "Office12", there is Scanpst. Click Scanpst, a dialog box appears.
  • Click on "Browse" and then ... PC -> C drive-> user-> name-> appdata-> local-> mocrosoft-> Outlook.
  • In two Outlook folders appear. Archive and Outlook. Click on Outlook and then start. At the end of looking to "fix".
