    Hi -Outlook says it won't import my back up pst file I made before reformatting coz "the properties for this service need to be defined prior to use" amd than I am denied access to this file
    The pst is big ,12MB. Is there a piece of software to redefine it or is there a work around
    cheers

    Hiya

    Rightclick the .pst file and choose Properties. What is it set to? If it says Read Only, then untick that and try again.

    If its not ticked, let us know.

    Regards
