Fix PST file access denied error while importing PST file

All later versions of Outlook such as 2007, 2010 etc are well-equipped with sophisticated features. It allows you to easily import data by using Import and Export wizard. But in some cases, the users could not import any PST files to Outlook. The basic Outlook data file which is used by the users for receiving incoming e-mail messages is known as default delivery location. For using an existing PST as delivery location, you have to access e-mail accounts settings, use 'Deliver new e-mail to the following location' option, and choose the particular PST file for e-mail delivery. However, doing this can sometimes result in error messages which stop you from performing this setup.

Let us consider a scenario when an Outlook user makes attempts to access the PST files and set it as delivery location, encounters the following error message:

“Microsoft Outlook: File access is denied. You do not have permission required to access the file drive_letter:\path_name”

Where, drive_latter and \path respectively denote the root drive letter and full path to the PST. If you will try to access the file directly on server drive it gives the same error message.


PST file access denied error occurs if the PST file is either read-only or corrupt. PST corruption may occur due to network sharing since file sharing on any network link is not supported by Microsoft.
