It can happen that duplicate pst files appear in Microsoft Outlook. These files are sometimes referred to as ghost files which are displayed in the folder list and other folder views in the email client. These duplicate pst files can be very problematic as they usually cannot be deleted easily from Outlook.
Error messages such as “Object was not found”, “The operation failed. An object could not be found” or ” Can’t open this item. The object could not be found” are often displayed when the user tries to remove them from Outlook. That leaves the Outlook user with no other option than to create a new Outlook profile which will mean that all settings, accounts and other information and personal preferences will not be carried over.
CodeTwo PST Ghostbuster is a portable program to resolve issues with duplicate pst files in Microsoft Outlook. The program can be used to automatically remove duplicate pst files from a Microsoft Outlook profile. The program displays a pulldown menu and a text form in its interface. The first menu can be used to select the affected Outlook profile while the text form can be used to enter the name of the folder that is appearing several times in the email client.
A click on the check button will scan the Outlook profile for duplicate pst files. A duplicate entry was found and can be cleaned if the message “Invalid sections that should be removed were found” is displayed to the user. Clicking on the repair button will then resolve the issue so that the duplicate pst file is removed from Microsoft Outlook.
PST Ghostbuster can be downloaded from the developer’s website. It is compatible with Microsoft Outlook 98 to Outlook 2007 and Windows 2000 to Windows 7.
