How to recovery data from .pst file (outlook data) ?

Postby Bryan L. Warfield » Wed Jul 23, 2014 5:47 am

Hi everyone,

I've big problem about my outlook data file. (I use Outlook 2007)
My outlook data file it's too large (19 gb.) then i can't open it from Outlook program.
It's displayed an error: Errors have been detected in the file ....
I've tried to restore the data but can recover only 845 mb. from 19 gb.
(Use SCANPST.EXE for restore it)
So, do you have another way to recover it for me because i lost an e-mail almost a year.

Thank you for the help and advice.

As you are using Outlook 2007, the .pst file must be in Unicode format. A Unicode .pst file of 19 GB is not too large as it has no size limitation. Usually .pst files get corrupted due to oversizing issue. But it seems the cause is not its oversize here, it might be something else. As you have already used SCANPST.EXE, so to recommend this again would not be a good idea.

As you are looking for another way other than SCANPST.EXE, to recover your file, I would recommend you to check some third-party PST recovery apps. You can check SysInfoTools File Repair software to recover your data from corrupt .pst file. You can try its free demo version to check the preview of recovered data.
