Hi Davionevan,
 
You can remove the Ghost PST file using Manual way: 
  • Close Outlook.
  • Go to the folder where the pst is stored:
  • C:Documents and SettingsusernameLocal SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook (Windows XP)
  • C:UsersusernameAppDataLocalMicrosoftOutlook (Vista)
  • and make a copy of the Outlook.pst file. The file should be copied to the same folder. (Select the PST, press Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+V to paste)
  • Rename the original file to Outlook1.pst and the other one to Outlook2.pst.
  • Restart Outlook.
  • Since Outlook cannot find the PST file, it displays a message box asking you to choose which PST file it should use. Select the Outlook1.pst file.
  • Outlook will again display the same message box for the ghost PST. This time select the Outlook2.pst file.
  • Outlook will start and you will see two PST stores in the profile as usual.
  • Right click on the second PST and the Close command should now be active so you can remove it from the profile.
  • Close and start Outlook again. If everything is all right and the second PST file didn’t appear again in the profile, you can delete the Outlook2.pst file from your disk.
