I’m new to this club, and new to CD-burning. The answer to my query is probably not LiteOn-specific; apologies, and you might want to answer off-list, if you think it would be wasting other members’ time.
I’m screwing up my courage to attempt my first-ever Windows reinstall. I’ve been backing up personal data. One crucial file is my MS Outlook mailbox file, C:\Windows\mailbox.pst I copied this onto a CD-R with my brand-new Liteon LTR-40125S. (It’s about 300 MB - I must do some culling …)
Then I tried to test the backup by opening Outlook using the copy. But I got an error message telling me that the copy is not a valid .pst file.
I copied the backup file back across to my hard disk, but got the same result with this new file. I altered its properties so that the Read-only box is cleared, and the Archive box is ticked (checked). Still no good.
Can anyone tell me what to do next? Do I have to resort to the Inbox Repair Tool?
