I have Windows XP Pro. My computer froze on me and dies yesterday. Now when I try to boot I get the blue screen. I have tried to boot every way possible but always get blue screen. In safe mode it hangs on mup.sys and blue screens. I took the drive and plugged it into my other system and can see all the files. I have moved all my data off the corrupt drive except one last thing I want. My OUtlook 2007 .pst file. I can’t find it anywhere on the disk. It was open when the crashed occurred so it is probably corrupted. Does any know how I can located it so I can run a utility to repair it? Would it have anohter extension besides .pst?? Any other suggestions for fixing blue screen would be nice too
I have tried every boot possible…safe modes, cd….everything.
With the drive loaded into a second system do the following
Open “My Computer”,
Click “Tools” (at the top)
Click “Folder Options”
Click “View” (at the top)
Click “Show Hidden Files and folders”
browse to the following location Replacing “X” for the drive letter that has been assigned to your drive in the second system.
X:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
You should find your PST file in here, copy it to a location of your choice.
You can run a repair of the PST file using the SCANPST.EXE utility
It can be found (on a system with MS Office installed on it) in the following location:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi33\
