Greetings to all!

Problem:
Outlook Express in excess of the size in the file "Inbox.dbx" more than 2 GB, ceased to display all the letters. An attempt to import the file "Inbox.dbx" in MS Outlook has not given result. Thought the problem is in FAT32... made it into NTFS, not helped. Advise me what to do?

Outlook Express

1. Try to do a backup. If that doesn't work, then try
2. Recently encountered with a situation when letters stopped be downloaded from the server to the client Outlook Express. The reason was trivial - limit was exceeded 2 GB. In Outlook Express on all folders (Inbox, Deleted items, Sent items, Outbox), there is a limit on letters up to 2 GB.
Next I list the files in which are stored the letters:
Inbox.dbx
Deleted.dbx
Sent.dbx
Outbox.dbx

And here approximately way where these files are stored:
C:\Documents and Settings\NameUser\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{090C85D9-374D-452E-87B6-0D93B52D64DA}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\
The path can be seen even by calling the menu on the appropriate folder and select Properties
Even if you delete the messages, you must compress the folder, but when limit exceeded 2 GB program will not compress. Do the following:
1 You create another folder, let's call it archive,
2 next, start with your Inbox to transfer ALL emails. Explain why. After you completely clean inbox you will need to delete the file Inbox.dbx. After restart of the program this file will appear again and you will return the necessary letters on the places again. And which aren't necessary to you you leave in the Archive folder or you delete from the hard drive. In the e-mail client there is a bug (error), even after cleaning completely Inbox, you can not compress it anyway.
3 After you have transferred the letter from the archive folder to the Inbox, it is necessary to compress the archive folder, if you are not going to remove it. This is to ensure that after the transfer of messages from the Archive folder in the Inbox folder, the file Archive.dbx kept records of previous messages that have been moved.
4 Allocate the Archive folder. Go to the File menu -> Folder -> Compress, or you can choose to Compress Everything. That's basically all.
5 Well, still have the option to open through this program DBX Open File Tool. I myself use it. Here it is http://www.dbx.openfiletool.com/
6 Else on this forum has useful information

Outlook Express Repair

Looks like that your Outlook Express DBX file got corrupt. I would suggest you to repair your DBX file. You can repair your corrupt file using third party tools. Though, there are various third party DBX repair tools are available but you should select your tool very carefully. I would suggest you to opt for Stellar Phoenix Outlook Express repair to repair Outlook Express mailbox folders.
