Hope this solves it for you! Here's the official word from Microsoft:
If you receive one or more of these error messages, you may experience performance issues until Outlook finishes the reconciliation process for the .ost file or for the .pst file. The following gear icon is displayed in the status bar while Outlook checks the data file in the background: Collapse this imageExpand this imageOutlook Free/Busy error - ol2007gearicon.jpg When this icon disappears, the .pst file or the .ost file is reconciled. If you exit Outlook while the gear icon is present, reconciliation must restart the next time that you run Outlook. We recommend that you leave Outlook running until the gear icon disappears before you exit Outlook.

An incorrectly shut down .ost file or .pst file may occur for one of the following reasons:

  • Antivirus scanning of the file
  • Forced Microsoft Windows shutdown before the Outlook.exe process shuts down completely
  • Outlook add-ins
If you see this issue frequently, and you have to exit Outlook shortly before you shut down your computer, it may be better to shut down Windows while Outlook is still running. We recommend that you do this instead of exiting Outlook and then shutting down Windows shortly after that.

Corrupt Outlook Express 6 .DBX File


You might use following methods, short guide from Microsoft below and if your corruption is severe check this out https://outlookexpress.recoverytoolbox.com/ Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Express

1) Identify all the .DBX files (folders) that you are going to restore but which do not exist yet on the new machine. This list of files would only include folders that you have created yourself and would not include folders like inbox, outbox, etc.
2) Start Outlook Express and create a new folder for each one you identified in (1).
3) For each new folder you have created you *must* highlight it - select it with your mouse as if you were going to see what is inside it. We know it is empty, but Outlook Express will not create the .dbx file until you do this. [Thanks to Ethan and "Biggles" separately for their input]
4) Close Outlook Express. Now you will see that your Outlook Express installation will have a .DBX file for every folder you are about to restore.
5) Now restore the .DBX files - that is you replace the empty dbx files created in 2 and 3 with the files from your backup.
6) If you restored from CD it may be that the read attribute on the files has been set. In this case you will need to ensure that the read attribute is cleared for each file you restored (right-click on the file and choose "Properties"). [Contributed by Aaron Kuhn]
7) If all is well, when you open Outlook Express now you will get all your restored messages.
If you receive a message in your message body window "cannot display folder, you may be out of memory or disk space" after restoring, then it is likely you missed step 6. Go back and ensure your DBX files are NOT set to Read-Only.

How to repair Outlook folders using the Inbox Repair Tool


Inbox repair tool(scanpst) is the best tool that can be used when you are finding any difficulties to connect your inbox folders or pst files or it is reporting that your Inbox folders or Outlook PST file may be damaged in Microsoft Office Outlook 2000 (or higher).Scanpst is a tiny tool installed by default when installing Microsoft Office 2000 or higher.

PST files or Personal Folder Files are used by Microsoft Outlook for storing Outlook data, including mailbox files, email folders, contacts or any other personal data related to Microsoft Outlook.

By default, Microsoft Outlook stored these PST files at the following location:

"C:Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook",

where USER_NAME is your Windows logon name.

The default PST filename for your active mailbox is Outlook.pst, while the archive file is stored as archive.pst.

"Before doing any types of repairing pls keep a back up of the pst files"

Using Inbox repairing tool

By default, Microsoft Outlook will install the Scanpst.exe file within your Program Files folder, in 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI1033'.

If you can't find the Inbox Repair Tool, you can download it from here then copy it to the above folder.

Make sure Microsoft Outlook is not running when you try to run the Inbox Repair Tool. When starting it, you should see the following screen:

If you get an error message like the following one:

7a9f6cb.jpg
then make sure you copied the Scanpst.exe file to the right location. If you still have problems running it, then search your hard disk for a file named "CNFNOT32.EXE" then run it: it should unpack and copy the Scanpst.exe file to its default path ('C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI1033').

Once you started the Inbox Repair Tool, use the Browse button to select your personal PST file. Remember, its default location is "C:Documents and SettingsUSER_NAMELocal SettingsApplication

DataMicrosoftOutlook",(It can be vary depending on how where you configured the pst files). where USER_NAME is your Windows logon name. Then click on the Start button. When the scanning process is done, you should see a notification screen like the following one:

Make sure you mark the checkbox for making a backup of the scanned file, then click on the "Repair" button. When this process is done, you should be able to properly start Outlook and use your recovered personal Outlook folders

How do i fix microsoft outlook?


Try these steps

* Click "File," then "Exit" to close Microsoft Outlook.
* Open Windows Explorer. Browse through your file system to where Microsoft Outlook is installed. On a 32-bit Windows system, this will be "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office XX," where "XX" is the Office version number. On a 64-bit Windows system, this will be "c:\Program Files (x68)\Microsoft Office\Office XX."
* Double-click "scanpst.exe." Click the "Browse" button and navigate to "c:\users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook." Double-click "archive.pst."
* Click "Start." The utility scans your archived PST file and reports any errors or corruption in the file.
* Click "Make Backup of Scanned File Before Repairing" if the Scanpst program finds errors. Click "Repair." Close the confirmation window when the repair is finished.

Then uninstall outlook express from windows component, you know outlook express is a component of MS WIndows, but you can uninstall it. After that re-install it and use the previously backed up folder as the store folder.
Thanks

Hi All, Can anyone please tell me how to stop Outlook Express from popping up wanting to free up disk space by compressing it EVEN when its not installed. I've had it on numerous computers and it


When messages are deleted in Outlook Express, they are not actually removed from the database containing your email data. Rather, the messages are marked to let Outlook Express know that they can be removed the next time the database is compacted. Compacting the message store is necessary for Outlook Express to maintain a reasonable database and avoid file corruption. Because it is necessary, Outlook Express offers to compact your message store every 100 times the program is used. If you do not compact your message store, the message will continue appearing. Compact the Outlook Express message store manually to remove the message asking if you would like your message store compacted automatically.
Compact the Outlook Express Message Store Manually Launch Outlook Express. Click "File," then click "Work Offline." This disconnects Outlook Express from the Internet temporarily, ensuring that the message store is not in use while you are compacting the database. Note: If you do not want to compact the Outlook Express message store at all, see Section 2. Click "Tools" and then "Options." Click the "Maintenance" tab. Click the "Clean Up Now" button. Click the "Compact" button. This process may take some time depending on when the message store was last compacted. Click "Close" or "OK" to close each window. The offer to compact the Outlook Express message store automatically will no longer be displayed. Click "File" and "Work Offline" to reconnect Outlook Express to the Internet. Compact the message store periodically to prevent the message from being displayed again. Remove the Offer to Compact the Message Store Without Compacting section 2 Press the Windows logo and "R" keys to display the "Run" dialog box. Type "regedit" without quotation marks into the box and press "Enter." This opens the Windows registry editor. Click the plus icons on the left side of the folder tree to navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER," "Identities," "(long string of letters and numbers)," "Software," "Microsoft" and "Outlook Express" folders. Click the "5.0" folder under the "Outlook Express" folder. Find the value named "Compact Check Count" on the right side of the window and double click it. Change the number displayed under "Value data" to "0" and click "OK." Close the registry editor. Outlook Express will not offer to compact your message store again until it has been launched another 100 times. Hope this helps

Cannot open Outlook 2007


I juts got this problem. Nothing worked, except finding the file (location is in the error message) and trying to rename it. The system told me it was in use.
I was able to find and kill the processes (Excel and a messenger app) using a file unlocker utility.
I have a feeling this would be just as easily resolved by the stadard 'switch it off and switch it back on again.'
