How to Repair Outlook PST files with Stellar Outlook PST Repair
Next to the Microsoft Inbox Repair Tool, Stellar Outlook PST repair is very useful to repair corrupt pst files. If you are using Microsoft Outlook as your email client application, you will be familiar with the concept of Personal Folder Files in Outlook, which are files with a .pst extension. The default Outlook pst file is called “outlook.pst”, but you can use as many additional Personal Folder files are you want.
But if a pst file gets corrupted, Outlook will not be able to access the contents anymore. This could mean loss of emails, contact, calendars and other Outlook data. A typical error message that you might see is “Errors have been detected in the file “file_path“. Quit all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox Repair Tool“. Another serious error is “Outlook .PST can not be found“, which means the file can not be found or opened at all. A final example of an error with Outlook 2000 is “Outlook.pst can not be accessed – 0x80040116“.
In some cases you might be able to use the inbox repair tool, scanpst.exe from Microsoft to recover the pst file, but Stellar Outlook PST Repair can not only recover PST files, but also recover PST passwords and split large PST files to fix most .pst file problems.
