    A pst looks like it needs repairing however the pst file is 10 GB large. Everytime I click ok to fix the pst file after it does the CRC check, it crashed. Is there anyway to reduce the size of the PST file so the repair tool wont crash?

    Repair errors by using Scanost.exe
    Exit Outlook if it is running.
    Double-click Scanost.exe, located at drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12.
    If you have set up Outlook to prompt for a profile, the tool will also prompt you for one. In the Profile Name list, click the profile that contains the .ost file that you want to check.
    If you are prompted to Connect or Work Offline, click Connect.
    Select the options that you want.
    To have the tool automatically resolve discrepancies that it finds during the scan, select the Repair Errors check box. If this check box is cleared, the tool will log the problems but not make the necessary corrections.
    Click Begin Scan.
