    Hi.
    I have upgraded my Lenovo laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. But after upgrading i cannot open one very important pst file which was on my flash drive.
    Getting a message saying 'Outlook.pst can not be accessed - 0x80040116'.

    Any thoughts please?
    Thanks

    Yeah, go back to Windows 8.1, or better yet, Windows 7.

    If the pst is from win 7 or win 8.Download an untouched iso of 7 or 8 from a torrent & install it into a virtual machine.import the emails to outlook then create a cloud email account like outlook.com etc.Send them all there

    I suppose that if you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or 50s, it might be a good idea for a person to be dumb enough to upgrade to the latest and greatest, but once you reach your 60s, and beyond, you realize that there is absolutely no need to upgrade your OS. And, from what I have read, Windows 10 is the worst OS that you could update to. I have seen it, and I would not touch it with a 10' pole. I think that anyone who upgrades to Windows 10 is either nuts in the head, or has a death wish. :( Or both.

    Win 10 is more usable once classicshell is installed.Then again i only use win 10 to play farcry 4 since it black screens in win 7.Those new chips i.e ryzen etc most probably won't support win 7,which is a crying frak'n shame

    Yah, I could've stuck with W7 for a lifetime probably, one of the best OS's MS ever released. I've beta tested since W2K and I think I installed W7 builds at least 20 or more times, but W7 RTM was the best I think we'll ever see. I went to W10 for one simple reason, it was free...I lived with the upgrade install for about 4 months and went thru HELL with it! Buggiest frikkin thing EVER! Graphics issues, half the shit in Settings didn't even show up, things overlapped, sliders didn't work, programs mysteriously uninstalled themselves, Start menu was a mess, problem after problem finally drove me to do a Clean install of 10. After that, life kinda settled down and while I would still prefer W7, I can live with 10 for what I need these days...we'll see how much longer that lasts tho...LOL!

    Never went there...glad I didn't! It is the ONLY MS OS that I have never installed, even for a trial on a VM. I had a bad feeling about that one right from the get go. Usually I would have beta tested 8 as well, but shit was going sideways in life at the time and when I finally started thinking about it, some initial beta testers I trusted, told me not to even bother, that they were sorry they did. People hated Vista as well, but I never had an issue with it, I enjoyed some of it's fresh new features and I love colour, so this "almost" made me disregard those friends and go for W8 anyway, like I said...glad I didn't.

    I might give that shell a try, there's still some things in 10's GUI that I F'n HATE!!

    I do like Windows 7 Pro. It is faster than Windows XP, but there are some things that XP is better at. One is copy or cut and paste, but there are a couple of others things that I don't remember at the moment.

    Anyway, I hope that I don't have to ever upgrade to a newer OS than Win 7. I am getting too long in the tooth to do it anymore.

    It all depends where you are doing it. There are some places that the right click for pasting is not there. I don't remember where, right now. It hasn't been a good day health wise. Tomorrow will be better.

    We certainly hope so Gramps, sorry to hear that you're not feeling too good...
    Here's a hearty Cheers to help you on that quest!

    On a different subject, I wonder how the OP did on fixing his problem? We haven't heard back from the OP, the link I posted should have helped him I think.
    Wouldn't it be super nice if OP's actually came back to let you know what's happening?
    Fat chance eh!

    Thanks, Chappy TTV, but with the Agent Orange taking over my body, it isn't going to get better. I am fighting to just maintain what I have now, and I have been successful for the most part.
