    In order to resolve Outlook issue so conferred, the inbuilt utility i.e. Inbox Repair Tool may be used, however the same does not assure for outright fix of the error. Cases may even be such that scanpst.exe would fail to locate the very problem and these are the cases looking for equipped repair utility is essential.

    Outlook 2007 repair software is specifically meant for the same as it scans the damaged Outlook personal folders to find & rectify the damages that exists and recreates all entries onto a new usable file.

    This error means that Outlook.pst (Outlook's main file for storing mail etc) cannot be accessed, usually because the file is corrupt. The first step would be to try to repair the file using scanpst.exe as suggested by Hovsep. If this doesn't work, you can try other pst recovery packages. In a worst-case scenario, you could give up on your data file and start again by creating a new profile.
