I have tried unsuccessfully to recover a PST file from a endusers network share.  The file is only 1/2gb but I am still getting a error message of "Errors have been detected in the file <file_path> . Quit all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox Repair Tool."  I can import and merge all the other files but this one is the one most needed.  what else can I try?  I have tried SCANPST.exe and it also gives me the same error message.

Aside from trying some paid third-party tools, there isn't much else you can do. Once a .pst file becomes corrupt, and if scanpst fails to recover it, your only options are to write off the data as lost, or buy a .pst recovery application.

Not only third party tools might helpful for getting back .pst files, you may visit some microsoft threads, where usual people can advise you a solution
