Microsoft Outlook 2007 offers a range of advanced features. It is hardly a surprise that a Microsoft Outlook user would look forward to upgrade his system. However, since upgrade is not completely safe, as it leads to data loss, it is usually recommended to backup the data file, i.e., PST file before upgrading. Failing to do so can result in serious data loss problems as an uninterrupted or incompatible upgrade can corrupt the PST. However, to deal with such situations of PST corruption, Outlook’s Inbox Repair Tool (Scanpst.exe) can do a great job by fixing most of the corruption issues, but this tool can also fail. And, you may have to use a PST Repair Tool.Upgrading to Outlook 2007 can harm the integrity of PST file. To support this, here is an example. One of the Outlook users running MS Outlook 2003 upgrades to MS Outlook 2007. But after this, he/she noticed that each time when he/she tried to move any item from the existing PST to another one, the operation could not be succeeded. On attempting to move the messages or any other PST item, the following error pops up:
“Cannot move the items. You don’t have appropriate permissions to perform this operation.”
The above error can result because of:
· Incorrect or insufficient permissions
· Outlook profile is damaged
· Outlook PST is corrupted
According to the issue in place, you can try the below solutions:
· Locate your *.pst file, right-click it, and check for appropriate file permissions
· Recreate the Outlook profile and attach the original PST. If the problem persists, it confirms the damage of PST in most of the cases
· Run Inbox Repair Tool (Scanpst.exe) to repair the corrupted PST. In case, the PST remains corrupted, you need a third-party PST Recovery solution.
