"It is simply the great software. It has not only repaired my PST file but also recovered journals, notes, appointments, contacts and other data's. I am really impressed with this software."
Microsoft Outlook users manage their personal folders like emails, notes, tasks, appointments or calendars stored under single PST index files. These personal folder files as well as the offline folder files are quite prone to corruption and often as a result users have to suffer the significant data loss. Many times while accessing the inbox files Outlook stops responding with unknown error messages on the user screen prompting that PST files can not be opened.
These errors are the alarming signals that warn the user to take appropriate steps as the PST file has got corrupted. There are lots of reasons behind the occurrence of such fatal circumstances like inappropriate system shutdown, sharing files over the network, improper synchronization with device or incompatibility with Outlook 2002 or prior version.
However Microsoft provides an inbuilt recovery utility called PST Scan tool designed to scan the specific PST file for any damage or corruption and then reset and rebuild the structure of PST or OST file and headers respectively. Microsoft also provides the facility of free Scan PST download if the file is not available on the system or erased permanently. The tool contains a hidden executable file named Scanpst.exe. In order to locate the file user need to turn on the hidden file view option. PST Scan 2003 is great to be used for files of Microsoft 2003.
In case if Scanpst.exe file is accidentally misplaced from the default folder, user is required to search the system in order to find the location of the file and then provide the path of the location of the file in the text area prompting to enter the path of the file. As the file comes integrated with MS- Outlook, the location varies in accordance with the various operating system and Outlook versions.
