I had a computer failure (don't ask!) which meant a complete re-install of everything (including the Windows Vista Ultimate OS). I have the .pst file with all my contacts, etc. saved, but when I try to import it into Outlook I get "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart Outlook." Previous attempts resulted in a "You do not have permission to access the file" errors. Another weird behaviour is that, when browsing to the .pst file within Outlook, there are no icons against the drives in the drop-down box. I've re-installed everything more than once, so nearing EOT.
I've tried changing permissions until I'm blue in the face, but they don't seem to "stick." In the file Properties box, the "Full Control" option is greyed in "Authenticated Users," "System" and "Administrators" and I don't seem able to get round this, no matter what I try. The .pst file itself seems to be OK. Where am I going wrong, please?
