Advanced utility ensuring complete Outlook mailbox recovery, following severe PST corruption


Microsoft Outlook is a widely used mail client, which comes within Microsoft Office suite and works as a personal information manager. Outlook stores emails, contacts, journals, notes, calendar entries etc in a special type of file with .pst extension (PST file or Personal Storage Table file). Whatever, you see in your Outlook mailbox are stored inside a PST file. If by any means, this PST file gets corrupt, Outlook fails to retrieve any mail item from the file and thus the entire mailbox becomes inaccessible. For such situations, Stellar has come up with an advanced PST recovery utility, repair the corrupt PST file and recover all the mail items from it.


But, before coming onto repairing or recovering a troubled PST file, it is better to be aware of the reasons behind PST file corruption so that may be it can help preventing the corruption. Below are some of the most prominent causes behind PST corruption:

  • Being over-sized above 2 GB size limit (Outlook 2002 and previous versions)
  • Sharing of PSTs among network attached drives
  • Corruption of the file header due to virus infection/unexpected shut down/power outage
  • Interruption of any PST compaction process
