EML to PST Failed Attempt, Outlook Converter Error Message
My first attempt to convert Windows Live Mail message to the MS Outlook PST format was unsuccessful and returned the following error message:

"System: Failed to Open store: Inbox (Converted 2021.01.17-14:3­1:14) (CreateOpenStor­age)"

Background on why I'm trying to do this:

Last Friday what seemed to be a routine Windows Update (2021-01, KB4598242) resulted in a total loss of internet connectivity. In fact, the Control Panel option "Network & Internet" was inoperable (flashed a screen with the gear symbol and then disappeared). In turn, after 2 days on the phone and "Chat" sessions, I was assisted in re-installing the Windows 10 operating system. That resulted in everything previously located in the "Windows" sub-directory to move into a "Windows.old" sub-directory and the consequent loss of use of all my programs (but not data, since backed-up also) including Windows Live Mail.

So, I've decided to "simply" move over to MS Outlook for mail service (not the Windows 10 Mail App) and have come to understand the need for this EML to PST conversion for my message histories. I have not tried to re-install the Windows Live Mail for Windows 10 program.

I discovered the paths to the multiple folder site and tried to use my Inbox (approx. 1400 messages) as the test case. But the above message was the outcome.

I'd appreciate some guidance on what I need to do next. Thanks.
