Fix the PST

Free toolkit

"If you can't open your Personal Folders file (.pst) or your Offline Folder file (.ost), or you suspect that your .pst or .ost data file is corrupt, you can use the Inbox Repair tool (Scanpst.exe), to diagnose and repair errors in the file.

  1. Quit Microsoft Outlook if it's running.

  2. Double-click Scanpst.exe, located at drive:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\LocaleID folder - where LocaleID is the locale identifier (LCID) for the installation of Microsoft Office. The LCID for English - United States is 1033.

  3. In the Enter the name of the file you want to scan box, enter the name of the .pst or .ost file that you want to check, or click Browse to look for the file.

  4. To specify scan log options, click Options, and then click the option you want.

  5. Click Start.

  6. When the scanning is completed, and if errors were found, you will be prompted to start the repair process.

  7. To change the name or location of the backup file created during the repair process, in the Enter name of backup file box, enter a new name, or click Browse to look for the file.

  8. Click Repair.

  9. Start Outlook using the profile that contains the .pst file that you tried to repair.

  10. On the Go menu, click Folder List.

In the Folder List, you may see a Recovered Personal Folders folder containing default Outlook folders or a Lost and Found folder. The recovered folders are usually empty, because this is a rebuilt .pst file. The Lost and Found folder contains folders and items that the Inbox Repair tool recovered. Items that are missing from the Lost and Found folder cannot be repaired.

If you see a Recovered Personal Folders folder, you can create a new .pst file, and then drag the items in the Lost and Found folder into the new .pst file. When you have finished moving all items, you can remove the Recovered Personal Folders (.pst) file, including the Lost and Found folder, from your profile."

Try-repair microsoft Outlook,because this tool helped me in similar situations,and yet is free as how as i know,program recovering lost Microsoft Outlook data is a sequence of operations involving scanning, identifying and saving such Microsoft Outlook items as messages, contacts, notes, reminders, journals, meetings, etc, recover data when a *.pst file completely or partially stops functioning, for example, it becomes completely or partially unreadable because of other applications, antivirus software or power failures,it scans, identifies and saves data from the pst file without modifying or indexing the source pst file,can save various Microsoft Outlook items as separate files with the .eml, .vcf and .txt extensions,reading data from files created in Microsoft Outlook versions 97, 98, 2000, XP, 2002, 2003, 2007 and saving recovered data in the format of Microsoft Outlook versions 97, 98, 2000, XP, 2002, 2003, 2007.
You can also try a powerful and robust PST Repair Software to repair corrupt Outlook PST & recover email, calendar, notes, tasks, contacts and other pst file items. The software also helps to retrieve lost pst password and split pst file of microsoft outlook.
Microsoft offers the Inbox Repair Tool to correct most of the issues with corrupted PST (Personal Storage) file. Although it is not always capable of handling PST Corruption and your PST file remains inaccessible. To handle such cases, you may try third party PST Repair software such as Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair.
