Repair Severe Corruption in Large PST when ScanPST Fails


Although ScanPST is an efficient option to repair PST file in Outlook 2016, however, it works only in case of minimal level corruption. Thus, when the PST file undergoes severe damage, corruption or virus intrusion, the built-in utility fails to repair the file and recover incorporated data contents.


The Way Forward


In the case of severe corruption, there is no manual procedure that can help fight PST corruption except the third-party Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair (http://www.stellaroutlooktools.com/scan/pst-repair.php) application that aims to repair the file, irrespective of the level of corruption. The tool repairs both UNICODE and ANSI PST and supports all the versions of the application which includes MS Outlook 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003 and all other previous version.

Now Outlook users can seamlessly make their PST file corruption-free and recover every piece of useful information!
