Outlook 2003 PST file issues

I created a backup.pst form Outlook 2003. I also copied 
the outlook.pst file onto a cd. I had to format my HD and 
reinstall Windows XP and Office 2003. When I try to open 
either of the two PST files I get an error message "The 
file C:\path info\backup.pst is not a personal folder 
file."

Can anyone please help me. All of my important email data 
is in there. I followed the instructions on the Microsoft 
site for backing up the file, not it won't open.

Did you remove the read only attribute these files acquired from being on a
CD?

Did you use the Outlook 2003 unicode format for the .pst file?  If yes, you 
need to reinstall Outlook 2003, open the .pst file and then create a new 
..pst file in the 97-2002 format, then drag and drop your data to that .pst 
and save it.

How did you make this backup?
Have you tried running the Inbox Repair Tool on the file?

Never export a PST file. Just copy and reuse the file.
Do you still have the original file?

So you copied your default Outlook PST to a CD, moved it to a new hard
drive, removed its read only attribute and now you cannot access this PST
through either the Inbox Repair Tool or through Outlook's File > Open
command? If so, your copying process corrupted it beyond anything I've ever
seen or can help with.

First of all don't blindly trust CD burners. They very often
fail which seems to be your case here.
A hicup in the burning process is all this is needed.

File size #11
I have read the other discussions on file sizes but they do not seem to address my problem. I have an Excel file that is 12mb large with low-res jpegs in it. This file also has merged cells to make it look pretty. Does Excel look at these merged cells as graphics? Is this why they are too big? I have run a macro to make sure that it goes to the last cell. How can I get the file smaller? How big are the graphics? If you remove them from the file, what is the size of the file and what is the size of the graphic files? To be sure you do not have extra formatting, if you open the file...

Linking files 2 ways
I have a work book that is linked to another and vise versa. As thus: Workbook A is where the input of data is made; Workbook B has a link to the input from workbook A; Workbook A retrieves the altered data back as a link. Although this all works fine with both books open, I note that if I open workbook A by itself, that the data it retrieves from Workbook B is not updated . If However, both books are open, there's no problem. I thought linked books were updated automatically if the Update remote references has been selected??

OL2007 not move big files from outbox to sent
Hi, We have 2 computers with separate email accounts on Roadrunner. One machine has XP with Outlook 2002-sp3 and works without any problems. The other has Outlook 2007 on Vista and has problems sending files over a meg or so in size. It seems to actually send the file but the file remains in the outbox folder and does not move it to the sent folder. I say it "seems" to send the file because some people complain of getting muliple copies and others don't seem to get them at all. If I hit send again (not set up for auto send) it seems to send the file again (why some ...

Using Relative path for XML data file?
Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn linked to the xml data file they will download. The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user will store their...

Redirect Exchange 2000 IS backup to different Exchange 2003 server
I recently added an Exchange 2003 server to the same org as a 2000 server. I have dbs from the 2000 server that I need to restore to retrieve email from a user whose mailbox was moved to 2003. So I need to restore the db for that mailbox from BEFORE it was moved because when you move mailboxes you lose any deleted items that were being saved by retention policy. Is this possible? I'm using Veritas Backup Exec 10 but nothing in their support KB seems to follow this exact scenario. If it helps, the old Exch 2000 server is currently empty of users and is ready to be uninstalled.
