Error in the Outlook.pst file. Can not open Inbox.

I recently had an accidental shut down of my computer. When restarting it,
opening Outlook and going to check my Inbox, I get an Error: "Unable to
display the folder. Errors have been detected in the file C:\Documents and
Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst. Quit Outlook and all mail enabled
applications, and thenk use the Inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose
and repair errors in the file."

I can open the Scanpst.exe. However, I can not find the Oulook.pst file to
repair. I have tried search but can not find the file anywhere.

Any other solution available to fix and open my Inbox?

By the way, all the other folders in Mail work fine.

You have not enabled viewing hidden files and folders. When SCANPST prompts
you, don't try to browse for the PST, just type in the complete path you've
listed above.
