    Hi running Win7 X64 having recently (2 months) transferred from XP. My Outlook pst files are in need or repair. I have used SCANPST.EXE on previous machines so am familiar with it. The problem is that the .pst files are stored, as it is the default location, within "/Users/Uername/Local Settings". This directory gives me the message "Access is Denied". I am logged in as adminstrator but am unable to see a way round this.
    Any help much appreciated.

    Take a look for your .pst file here
    C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst
    you may have to change your view settings by enabling "Show Hidden files, folder or drives"
