Solved I am trying to recover an OST file...

Specs: Windows 7, 4
I am trying to recover an OST file that is about 4GB in size. When the scanpst.exe program is running, it makes it through 7 of the 8 steps and then throws the following error message:

An error has occurred which caused scan to be stopped. No changes have been made to the scanned file.

Is there anything I can do to recover this corrupted OST file?

I assume you're connecting to an Exchange server and using cached Exchange mode. If so, you can delete the ost file, and it will be recreated when Outlook is reopened.
