Using DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery to Recover Outlook Data
 
 

As long as you have stored Outlook data on your drive or disk, then for whatever reason you cannot retrieve or access your Outlook data, you can always use DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery to recover Outlook emails and other objects from the drives or disks for you.

 
Note: AS SOON AS THE DATA DISASTER HAPPENS ON YOUR OUTLOOK DATA LOCATED IN THE SOURCE DRIVE OR DISK, PLEASE DO NOT WRITE OR CHANGE ANY DATA ON THAT DRIVE OR DISK ANY MORE. DODR WILL ONLY READ DATA FROM THAT DRIVE OR DISK AND WILL NEVER WRITE OR CHANGE ANY DATA ON IT!
Step 1 Start DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery
Note: Before recovering Outlook data with DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery, please close Microsoft Outlook and any other applications.
Step 2

If the logical drive where your Outlook pst files are original stored still exists and its size or location has not been changed yet, then please select that drive to be scanned:

Select source drive

Otherwise, if the logical drive does not exist any more, due to re-partition of the disk, lost of the MBR or partition information, or any other reasons, or the logical drive is resized or relocated with partition tools such as Partition Magic, then you should set the whole hard disk storing the pst files as the source disk to be scanned:

Select source disk

If you plug-in or out a removable disk to your computer after DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery is launched, then you can click the Refresh button to refresh the drive and disk list in the combo box.

Step 3

If you know the version of the source Outlook data to be recovered, then you can specify it in the combo box Select Source PST Format beside the disk or drive combo box, possible formats are Outlook 97-2002 and Outlook 2003-2016. If you leave the format as "Auto Determined", then DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery will scan the source Outlook data to determine its format automatically. However, this will take additional time.

Step 4
Please specify the output fixed file name. During the recovery process, DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery will recover all the Outlook data from the disk or drive you selected, then save the recovered data into a new file with this name.
Select Fixed PST File Name

You can input the fixed file name directly or click the Browse for Destination PST File button to browse and select the fixed file.

You can also specify the format of the fixed file in the combo box Select fixed file format, possible formats are Outlook 97-2002 and Outlook 2003-2016. If you leave the format as “Auto Determined”, then DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery will output fixed files according to the version of Outlook installed on your computer.

Note:
TO PREVENT OVERWRITING YOUR OUTLOOK DATA ON THE SOURCE DRIVE OR DISK, PLEASE DO NOT SELECT AN OUTPUT FIXED FILE NAME ON THE SOURCE DRIVE OR DISK.
Step 5

Click the "Start Recovery" button, and DataNumen Outlook Drive Recovery will start scanning the selected drive or disk, and recovering emails and other objects from it. Progress bar will indicate the recovery progress.

After the recovery process, if any data have been recovered from the drive or disk successfully, you will see a message box like this:

Message Box

Step 6 Now you can open the fixed PST file with Microsoft Outlook. The whole folder hierarchy will be reconstructed in the fixed PST file and the objects are recovered and put to their original folders. For the lost & found objects, they will be put in Recovered_Groupxxx folders.
Note:

The demo version will display the following message box to show the success of the recovery:

In the fixed PST file, the contents of the messages and attachments will be replaced with a demo information. Please order the full version to get the actual recovered contents.
