Repairing a .pst RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a large, zipped .pst file that I am trying to repair. The file will not open in Outlook because it is corrupt. I have tried to repair the file with scanpst.exe and Kroll OnTrack butt neither have been successful, they crash when they get close to completing the repairs.. Any ideas of a better way to go about the repairs? Or a better inbox repair tool?

    Thanks

  • You can repair Outlook PST and recover all your emails and other items by using Outlook Repair Toolbox. This software is very effective in repairing severely corrupted PST file.

    Software Link: http://www.pst.repairtoolbox.com/

    In case first solution wasn't effective - Go to

    C:\Users\~user~\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

    Find the pst file that you think is corrupted.
    Right click, and select properties
    Select first Previous Version before corruption.
    Restore.

    You might need to unhide files first.

    If you want to try to repair the most recent you can try later (back it up first)

  • Scanpst tool is the best option in minor corruption or data integrity issues in Outlook data files.
