I have to repair my corrupted Outlook 2000 PST file. I have already tried fixing my file by using Scanpst.exe. I thought it is the only way to repair my PST file. But my friend told me that there are many options. I’m really confused in choosing right option in all. Can anyone help me to fix the issue?
Here are some clues which I found:
- Sudden Outlook crash
- Sending and receiving Outlook mails are sluggish
- Displaying error messages
- Application itself not opening
By considering the above symptoms, it is obvious that the PST file is corrupted. However, the issue is critical because scanpst.exe cannot fix the file. It is necessary to know how to identify that a PST file is corrupt when it is showing error messages?
Take an example; if your PST file is showing ‘abc.pst file could not be found’, then there might be three chances:
- When you backed up your mail using any configuration program
- At the time of accessing previously backed up file
- When the mail file is appeared in an encrypted folder
Let’s check on some reasons which make your PST file get’s corrupt.
- Malfunctioning of Outlook application
- Due to improper Outlook up gradation to its higher version
- Sudden termination of system when Outlook is running in background
- Because of OS reinstallation
During these situations Outlook may behave erratic and will left you in a jeopardous situation. But, don’t worry much because a simple program is waiting for you. Let’s stroll down the page to know about it.
