“I have some problem with my Outlook. Instead of running normally, it will hang up while loading profile. I have tried fixing this issue using Inbox Repair tool but it did not help me and in turn displayed an error message that it cannot be repaired. What can I do now? Is there any way that could help me to fix my PST file when Microsoft hangs on loading profile?.
