Re: repair the pst file


I tried switching off the search facility in Outlook, following which I could not open Outlook at all.

I have used the scanpst repair tool and the more extensive Office repair tool available from Add/Remove programs, which did permit me to open Outlook again, both without success in achieving the download of my emails.

The Outlook program still says that Outlook.pst file is in use by another program and cannot be accessed.

I swiotched off search indexing in the task manager processes running list but that did not work either.

If I do a new install of Outlook, will I lose any of my emails?

Best Wishes,
