Outlook 2000 PST file problems

jwil
I have seen many discussions on the internet regarding defective PST file issues. Until now I have not seen satisfacory answers. I hope somebody can bring more knowledge into the community,
On our network we use PST files as a backup method for an overloaded exchange system.
I have had already 3 occasions where a PST archive could not be read anymore.
Example:
- New PST file made manually
- Mails copied onto this PST files (in Outlook)
- Closed PST file and copied onto CD
- Retrieve from CD for restore purpose
- File NOT readonly
- I get errors like:
* "Properties for this information service must be defined prior to use"
* "The file [filepathh] is not a file for private folders."
- Openening the next time gives the error
* "The file [filepathh] is not a file for private folders."
- Repair tool does not retrieve anything
- Tried opening in Office2003
- Tried using it as an archive pst file
- Tried importing

Nothing works

Who has ANSWERS?

Kind regards, Jeroen

    That you are trying to import the mail back into Outlook from the CD you have created, this is not likely to be successful. I have tried to do this from a server location in the past and still it wont work until you copy the .pst file to the Outlook folder on your computer.
    There is no reason i can think of why that wouldn't work as long as the copy operation from CD to hard drive works ok
