Windows 7: .pst files issues

.pst files issues

Following upgrade from XP to W7, my Outlook .pst file will not open in Outlook. I get an error message and if I use the scanpst utility to repairs the file, I lose the last three years of emails. The files was working fine, but will not open on any of our W7 computers. Any ideas? Even in house and web backups do not help. File size is 14GB.
