Software are installed in different locations according to the operating system. It means different operating system installation location also vary. Like in different versions of Microsoft windows the location to store Microsoft Outlook Scan pst is different. Windows Vista stores scanpst.exe in the different location from its earlier versions like windows XP or 2000. The location is:
< System drive :>\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
Another location to find the Scan PST vista is:
< System drive :>\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033
The Scan PST vista installs on your system by default at the time of the installation of the Microsoft Office or if you are installing the Microsoft Outlook/ Microsoft Office Outlook on the Windows Vista Operating system.
Scanpst.exe Vista works to check if the PST file’s actual file structure is correct or not. In case there are problems, the Scan PST on vista works to repair by repairing the damaged header.
The Limitation with the Scan PST vista is that it can not repair the files if the corruption is taken place in the actual data part of the file. It means if the PST file has been corrupted and the problem is not in the header part then the Scan pst does not repair the file. Further while attempting to repair the file if it finds the corruption in the data then deletes the file and it results as loss of the file permanently. So in order to prevent similar situations you need to recover the data using some reliable and really capable software program. Outlook PST Repair is one of them.
