    PST file corrupted in Outlook 2007

    I have a corrupt PST file in Outlook 2007. All the tools available won't allow me to fix or even restore some of the data.

    I have some important emails that I need for business but can't access them.

    Outlook 2007 error indicates not a pst file (size not an issue, have copied, renamed, etc. etc. no luck).

    Scanpst error doesn't recognize the file.

    If anyone has any solutions to recover my .pst file?

    Thanks in advance to responses!

    Couple steps you may apply...

    1. Repair the offline file with a Microsoft utility called SCANOST.exe. I’ve seen this file
    reside in a number of different locations, mainly within Program Files. It might be best to
    search for it with Windows or Google Desktop. SCANPST.exe will also work, though you’ll have
    to go digging for your outlook.ost, which should be near c:\Documents and Settings\ %profile
    %\ Local Settings\ Application Data\ Microsoft\ Outlook\ outlook.ost. If your file is
    significant in size, you’ll save a lot of time with the repair operation by not creating a
    backup. Because if the repair finishes successfully and Outlook still bombs, you’ll need to;

    2. Shutdown Outlook completely, including any runaway outlook.exe processes in the task
    manager. Open Mail in the Control Panel and before you delete your profile completely, write
    down the server settings! There’s no need to worry about backing up your mail as it’s stored
    on the Exchange server. (Essentially, you’re deleting that outlook.ost when you drop your
    mail profile.) Now, start Outlook and it will create a new profile, where you’ll configure
    the server with the information you wrote down previously.

    If steps above doesnt work or you need to get more variants of .pst restoration, visit...

    Can try use Outlook Repair Toolbox. The MS Outlook PST repair tool also enables you to convert *.OST files to *.PST format.
