|It's OK guys ... I sorted it myself ! |
Managed to surmount the problem of the missing link (my Outlook.pst file unable to be located in place on hard drive that search function shows it is in). Scanpst.exe was rejecting the file for this reason.
After much head scratching I found a way around the issue. I simply right clicked on the found Outlook.pst file in Search to create a desktop shortcut. Then in Scanpst.exe dialogue box clicked : browse/desktop/Outlook.pst shortcut .... and it worked !!!
Never thought I'd be so pleased to hear that sound of scanning. Errors in the file were found and fixed. Now I'm backing up my Outlook.pst file weekly onto hard drive and USB !
