It’s very common for an installed application program to fail during use. Since most of the user files are never stored in the program installation directory, whenever there is a problem with the application program itself, users often uninstall the program and reinstall a clean version. In a majority of the cases, this procedure solves the problem.
After the reinstallation, the user can easily open files associated with the application and edit or just read them. Is this the same for all programs? Apparently not! A typical example is the email clients that store files in the same directory as the installed program. Whenever such email clients are installed, all activities are stored in the install directory thus making it impossible to simply uninstall and still get all the user files. Where the user wants to still retain activities related to their email clients, a proper backup must be made.
The use of MS Office Outlook presents a similar scenario where the corruption of the application program has the potential effect of interfering with the user data stored locally. In fact, even where the user has opted to uninstall the program, caution must still be taken to ensure that the .pst files are not damaged or deleted. They must then be backed up accordingly otherwise their loss would be imminent. With the sensitivity and nature of email conversations and the value attached to other administrative functions stored in .pst files, the loss of such data would be heart-wrecking hence the undeniable need for backups.
Where the data has been lost, however, the need for pst recovery presents itself. Initially, it was impossible to recover corrupted pst files, but with the advancement in application development, numerous applications have come of age, rendering the recovery of such files possible. These applications also make it possible to recover deleted files with just the click of a button.

In as much as there are many programs that can be used to repair .pst files, not all are satisfactorily effective.
