Outlook 2010 Error – “Your outlook data file cannot be configured” referencing my OST file

Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 hung so I killed it off with the close all open windows option in Windows Explorer. After that I got the above error message stating that it couldn’t configure my email with a reference to my .ost file.

I didn’t want to reboot or log-off so I was looking for a solution that I could use within these constraints as a standard user. I found a blog entry that advises exiting Microsoft Lync before trying to start Outlook, suddenly it all started working again!
