  • Hi Bruce,

    You may need to run the Inbox Repair tool for several times until there is no error can be detected. If you can still access the original PST file, you can also try to recover items from the backup (.bak) file. See the following article for more information:


    If above still doesn't help, you may need to find some third-party recover tool or have to create a new PST file.

  • Steps to repair PST file with scanpst.exe are already given above i just want to add that sometime it is need to run inbox repair tool two or three times before all errors are removed from PST file. So if running inbox repair tool single time doesn't repair your PST file then it is advised to run it again until all the errors are removed from PST file
