After the popularity of Microsoft Outook 2003 and other versions, Microsoft outlook 2007 was available in the retail stores at the end of January 2007. Microsoft is also providing the trial of their outlook 2007. Its features are far better than its earlier versions. Some of its features include To-Do bar, improved calendar views, text and picture message sending, integrated RSS aggregator, Instant Search, Enhanced integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server and many more. It makes the Outlook 2007 a must have business companion for today's business people and those who understand the need of Personal Information Management.
Microsoft Outlook uses the same ways to store the information on the outlook and it uses PST files to store all your personal information. PST files are also known as Personal Folders File. If you are having problem with your personal folders file or your PST files has been corrupted then you will encounter a big problem of inaccessibility of data on Outlook.
To solve these kind of similar issues Microsoft outlook 2007 comes with the Inbox Repair Tool (Scanpst.exe) that is used to diagnose and repair errors in the PST file. It is designed to scan only the PST files and not the complete mailbox on the server running on the Microsoft Exchange. Actually the scanpst outlook 2007 works by finding whether the file structure in correct or not. If it is not correct then the Inbox Repair Tool resets your File Structure and rebuilds the headers.
The location where the scanpst.exe outlook 2007 is located is:
< drive:>\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE 12
If you are unable to open the PST file then you may be able to recover the additional items from your damaged .PST file. The Inbox Repair Tool creates a backup copy of PST with the File name.BAK extension. It is the copy of original file with different extension and is stored in the same folder where original PST file is located. You can use this backup file if the Scan PST outlook 2007 fails to recover files completely.
Since in this version too, Microsoft does not made the tool more powerful and therefore if the PST file actual data is damaged or PST file is deleted or lost then Scanpst.exe outlook 2007 will not recover them as it is not capable to do so.
At this stage where generally the size of PST is very big and contains large volume of important data, it is the most important task to recover the files from any level of corruption.
Outlook PST Repair which is professional Data Recovery software for Outlook can be used to repair and recover the PST files so that everything becomes fine once again. It can perform all those things that Scanpst outlook 2007 fails to do for successful recovery. It is capable to recover the deleted PST files and lost PST files and repair it. After the repair you will be access all those messages, files, attachments and everything that the PST was containing earlier.
Outlook PST Repair is available as free download so people should try it first and then if it shows the files in the scan result, go for the purchase.
It's really difficult to get back Outlook data after a system crash. But I easily get back the entire lost data even after my system crash with the help of Outlook PST Repair software.
Thank you again for the great help! Allen 'Oahu'
