Using DataNumen Outlook Repair to Recover Corrupt Outlook PST Files

 
 

When your Outlook PST files are damaged or corrupt and you cannot open them normally in Microsoft Outlook, you can use DataNumen Outlook Repair to scan the PST files and recover the data from the files as much as possible.

 
Step 1 Start DataNumen Outlook Repair.
Note: Before repairing damaged or corrupt PST file with DataNumen Outlook Repair, please close Microsoft Outlook and any other applications that may modify the PST file.
Step 2
Select the damaged or corrupt Outlook PST file to be repaired:
Select PST File to be Repaired

You can input the PST file name directly or click the Browse for Source PST File button to browse and select the file. You may also click the Find Source PST File button to find the PST file to be repaired on the local computer.

Step 3

If you know the Outlook version of the source PST file to be repaired, then you can specify it in the combo box Select Source PST Format beside the source file edit box, possible formats are Outlook 97-2002 and Outlook 2003-2010. If you leave the format as "Auto Determined", then DataNumen Outlook Repair will scan the source PST file to determine its format automatically. However, this will take additional time.

Step 4
By default, DataNumen Outlook Repair will save the recovered data into a new file named xxxx_fixed.pst, where xxxx is the name of the source PST file. For example, for source PST file Outlook.pst, the default name for the fixed file will be Outlook_fixed.pst. If you want to use another name, then please select or set it accordingly:
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.

Step 5

You can select the format of the fixed PST file in the combo box Select Source PST Format beside the fixed file edit box , possible formats are Outlook 97-2002 and Outlook 2003-2010. If you leave the format as "Auto Determined", then DataNumen Outlook Repair will generate the fixed PST file compatible with the Outlook installed on the local computer.

Step 6

Click the "Start Repair" button, and DataNumen Outlook Repair will start scanning and repairing the source PST file. Progress bar Process Bar
will indicate the repair progress.

After the repair process, if the source PST file can be repaired successfully, you will see a message box like this:

Step 7 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:
