Hi Rebecca,

I would like to suggest to use other tool rather than PST Repair
( SCANPST.EXE ) tool, when run scanpst.exe than some time unknown error generate, show some hidden files so it's better opt to move third party tool like Stellar Phoenix PST Recovery tool.

Hello Balaji,


If you are unable to repair .pst file using scanpst.exe, then it might be highly corrupted. So it is better to use some third party inbox repair tool tool to fix your damaged PST file.

I suggest you to Download a demo version of any tool and try it. If you feel that it will be able repair then use it. because a wrong tool may leads to further corruption of .pst file beyond repair.

Good Luck.
