I have a PST file that is 2 MB located on a network drive that was created in Outlook 2003, but when I try to open it in Outlook 2003 it says it's empty, no folders, just the deleted items folder that is empty as well.

I tried running scanpst.exe, it shows that there are 7 folders and no errors.

Any ideas?

2MB is considered small for a pst file

A brand new pst file with totally nothing inside it is about 300 KB. so you have like 1.7 MB left. that would mean maybe 5 emails, a few appointments in the calendar, some entries in the contacts and a couple of tasks. so don't expect to find a lot in it.

Right-Click the pst file while it's open in outlook, choose properties then click the (folder size) button, it should show you in detaile where each kb is reserved.
