Unable to load personal free/busy data. The file F:\Documents and Settings\Pete|Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst could not be accessed. Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
The file is not there, nor are any other .pst files.
There are several fix and restore, but I have none to fix or restore.
I can't imagine how I happened, everything was running fine. I did notice a Microsoft Update was coming in over the net. Then the power went out, the battery backup was dead, since the computer actually did no more than a reboot, it was just a blink with the power off. Maybe not time for the backup to pick up to be honest.
Anyhow, Outlook is the first thing that loads on a restart and it just sits and churns forever. After 5 minutes of Ctrl-Alt-Del I can shut it down and the rest of the machine does just fine. But nothing else will load while Outlook is grunting and groaning.
XP with Office 2000 and all the updates and service packs that have come along.
I'm dead in the water.
