You might be using MS Outlook regularly and have been a valued user of Outlook for long time. Knowingly or unknowingly you must also be using the .pst file regularly to store all your Emails on your local hard drive. After a prolong use of Outlook and .pst file, suddenly if you encounter with some issues while accessing Outlook, it lead to data loss. This may happen due to .pst file corruption. In such situation just think of an inbox repair tool which can help you fix the damaged PST file.
We will discuss the solution later but first let’s look at some of the reasons for .pst file corruption:
- Abnormal termination of Outlook application due to system crash or power surge: If your Outlook application terminates suddenly due to some power crash or improper shut down of computer while accessing data from Outlook, it may lead to corruption of the PST file.
- Because of logical corruption of Outlook: Logical corruption may happen due to human errors, software malfunction, virus infection, and improper modification of Outlook .pst file.
- Due to exceed in size of .pst file: The size of the .pst file is limited. If the data stored in it exceeds the size of the .pst file, then there are high chances of .pst file corruption.
We all know that Outlook uses a single .pst file to store all the Outlook data along with emails. Hence the result of .pst file corruption may leads to high data loss and your Outlook may stops working. This may affect your communication in professional and personal aspects.
At any point if you face the .pst file corruption, don’t think that it will last forever. You can repair the corrupt .pst file using PST Recovery software. Initially try with the inbuilt inbox repair tool provided by MS Outlook i.e. scanpst.exe. But often you will not get the desired results because of the inefficiency of scanpst. This tool can be able to repair only .pst file only to a certain extent.
If you are not able to see the expected result using scanpst.exe, then you can try a reliable third party software, which will definitely give you the required results. These tools can scan and extract all the contents of your .pst file. They will not damage the original .pst file, instead of that they will create a new copy of .pst file with the same old content which you can import back to your Outlook profile. These tools have user friendly interface so that even a person with minimum computer knowledge can use them easily to repair the .pst file
There is a one such type of tool which I recently came across is Remo Repair Outlook (PST), which is very competent, efficient and easy to use. You can download Remo Repair Outlook (PST) and use the software which is free to try and reliable software. So before using any tool, try and evaluate it according to your requirements and choose a best application.
