August 4, 2011

So your Outlook.pst file is coming up with the dreaded file corrupted message?

Dont worry because help is at hand

Microsoft provides an Inbox Repair Tool which finds and fixes most problems with damaged Personal Folders .PST files. You can find the Inbox Repair Tool on the Start menu, under Programs | Accessories | System Tools, use Start | Find or Start | Search (depending on your operating system) to search your system for Scanpst.exeemail problems and the dreaded corrupted Outlook file 1

Have a quick search now and try it out… if the version of scanpst on your PC doesnt work then dont worry because we have written a quick beginners guide on just how scanpst works and also included a guaranteed virus free download of the same file.

When you run Scanpst.exe, it performs a number of tests. If it finds errors, it asks whether you want to make a backup copy of the original file (always say Yes), then tries to correct the errors.

If you run Scanpst.exe against a .pst file that Outlook 2003 created for a local copy of Windows SharePoint Services events and contacts lists, you will get an error message that you can ignore.

For seriously corrupted PST files, try running Scandisk.exe (look under Programs | Accessories | System Tools) first, then Scanpst.exe, repeating 3-4 times until neither program returns an error. We’ve know this technique to restore data that the user though was lost forever.
