You may try using the scanpst.exe utility from the Microsoft Office (your version) program folder. Take a look at this article
Scan and repair corrupted Outlook data files - Outlook - Microsoft Office
I would, and always do, backup my pst file before hitting it with any external utility.

thanks for your reply again. I have backed up data in another file and now i cant (how u would put this) re-install old backed up files i guess.

not exactly what form of backup you did, but you shouldn't have to re-install the old file or files. If you simply made a copy of your .pst file to another location on your computer, you should be able to open that from within outlook. Simply choose, file then open then Outlook Data File, browse to the location of your backed up pst and it should open from within outlook as a seperate set of personal folders.

thanks for all your advices, however when I tried using Microsoft's scanpst.exe repair tool and it didn't work after all. This error message keeps popping up. I was so anxious to try this repair tool that I forgot to keep a backup of my outlook pst file...is that a problem? is there a possibility that this move had damaged my pst data?!
