Unfortunaly it's screwed up.
Thanks for help anyway
Outlook usually comes with a pst/ost file repair utility. Run it through that and see what happens.
pandy thanks for advice
Cornucopia what utility do mean?
Same utility mentioned in pandy's link: scanpst.exe (i just didn't fully trace down & read through the link before posting). Comes with every install of outlook since at least 2000 til now.
If that doesn't work, you are SOL (unless you've got $$$ to burn).
Use scanpst.exe to check the pst file for errors. The location of scanpst.exe depends on your version of Outlook and Windows. When scanpst.exe is unable to fix it there might have been some serious corruption in the pst file. There are some recovery softwares available like Outlook Fix Toolbox https://www.fixtoolbox.com/outlookfix.html
I hope it helps.
Thanks for your help.
