First off that PST file is still under the size that is allowed. The problem could be that it was bigger than 2 Gb and it was truncated. The scan tool wont fix everything and MS admits that. The other tool that you can try is not available unless you contact MS support and those calls are not free. I would see if you can rename it and import it some cases allow this to happen and it takes care of the issue.

In the Enter the name of the file, enter the path and file name listed in the error message above.
Note. May not be able to use the Browse button to locate the file, t. To. It is located in a hidden folder.
To change the logging during the scan, click Options. If the switch is set to replace or supplement protocol protocol, the log file will be saved in the same folder as the file .pst.
Click the Start button.
When the scan is finished a file, select Create a backup copy of the file before restoring.
Click the Restore button.
If the file has been successfully restored, a message is displayed that the recovery is complete. If using a recovery program "Inbox" file is not recovered, you will need to use a backup file.
Or try to recover files through the program Outlook Repair Kit. She saved me many times.
