  • Updated 4 years ago
Outlook gives an error message stating, “The file .pst is in use and cannot be accessed. Close any application that is using this file, and then try again.You might need to restart your computer.
I used about couple methods:

1. Apply scanpst.exe
2. Reinstallation of MS OUtlook
3. Changing original .pst location

I cant get access to my .pst file, nothing helped

Any ideas, please!

 Last week, I faced the same problem.

At the initial stage, I was gone through task manager to close instances of unwanted running programs.

But, It was not effective for me. I failed to access Outlook Mailbox again.

Then, I read a review MS Outlook MVP about the Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair Software. Then, I tried demo version and got expected result in the preview of the demo. After that, I had saved the repaired Outlook PST file through the full version of software.

 Really, it was a great experience for me !
