we didnt find anything to show here - opening pst RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi I run windows 10.  I just bought the pc and installed office 365 with 2yr expiration.  Everything was fine with outlook till I tried today to export a pst.  The file created is over 385 meg which might be ok, I wont know till I verify its contents.  ESET is my antivirus. 

    I copied the file over to a different folder and then asked outlook to open it.  The message I get is "we didn't find anything to show here".  I tried the same with the original pst and got the same response.

    That's tough to swallow after I laid out I think a couple of hundred dollars for this product.  Knowing I can backup and recover emails is an important part of the expectations I had.

  • I tried scanpst.exe, it didn't help.

    I was however able to import stuff from such a file.  I deleted all the contents of trash after exporting same.  Then imported file trash folder back to outlook trash and that worked. 

    each step of the way seemed to sync with my provider.  

    maybe pst's aren't meant to be read?
