Found your great site whilst looking for alternative ideas to fix problem that has arisen of late. I run Microsoft Outlook Pro 2003 (not exchange server) and recently I have had an increasing amount of problems with Outlook.
It would appear that I have a corrupt section of my hard drive because I very frequently get error / corrupt messages relating to my back up .pst file and location. I have done chkdsk and scanpst to no avail. The attempt to "repair" one of the folders always comes up with "Not responding" and has to be shut down. I am also unable to run a System back up on the machine for some unknown reason.
I now appear to not have the abiltiy to send / receive through Outlook. Also information would not appear in the Reading Pane or I cannot delete certain emails from the Deleted folder in Outlook. It again comes up with "error" type messages.
Questions for you all..
1) Can I somehow delete the current backup files / folders and set up somewhere else. (assuming that the problem relates to a corrupt section of my hard drive).
2) Can I re-install Outlook over the top of the current set up. Wouldn't think that that would help, but not sure.
3) Buy a new Hard drive and transfer info across to new hard drive and bin current / corrupt one
I am at a loss now and would appreciate some assistance.
