Outlook PST Repair Tool to Repair PST File

Published on 25 May 15

PST files which is also known as Personal Storage Table is an important constraint of email communication via Microsoft Outlook. All user information like emails, contacts, calendars, notes, journals, attachments, tasks etc is stored in the PST file. The PST file is stored locally on user system and can be managed even when connection to internet is not available. The changes made were synchronized once the connection is available. The PST file is vulnerable to frequent corruptions due to physical or logical errors.

Once the PST file gets corrupted, work comes to a halt and user is not able to access his emails. The various reasons which leads to corruption of PST file includes improper system shutdown, virus attacks, abrupt closing of Outlook program etc. If you have corrupt or damaged PST file you can get messages like this:

  • The file abc.pst cannot be accessed (0×80040116)
  • Unknown Error (0×80040600)
  • The file abc.pst has reached its maximum size
  • Outlook.pst has reached its maximum size
  • Outlook .pst could not be found

It is advised to keep a backup of PST file frequently to avoid losing important information if such condition arises. The other way to tackle the situation is to use Scanpst.exe which is also known as Inbox Repair Tool. Scanpst.exe is available for free with MS Outlook application. You can find Scanpst.exe by following the steps here:

Click Start > Search > Type Scanpst.exe > Press Enter. Windows will show you Scanpst.exe. Select and Double-click it to run.

Inbox Repair Tool scans the PST file for all possible errors and in second step it repairs the PST file. Sometimes it is required to Run Scanpst.exe for two or three times to remove all errors from PST file. If the PST file is still inaccessible then you must try some more powerful third party application like Stellar Phoenix outlook PST Repair to repair the PST file.

This software guarantee recovery of all data like emails, contacts, calendars with their original properties and formatting intact. Moreover you can repair encrypted or password protected PST file with this tool which is not possible with Scanpst.exe.

    In my opinion, first you should try to run Inbox Repair Tool or SCANPST which is a free utility developed by Microsoft to repair minor corruptions in Outlook Data File. But, Inbox Repair Tool does not repair highly corrupted PST File and also fails to repair huge Outlook Data File. So in such a scenario, you can switch to any third party source.
