Corrupt PST File
Posted on 2005-05-09
I was trying to backup my Outlook PST file over the network. The file got corrupted. Long story, stupid mistake.
I recovered the file using Microsoft's SCANPST.EXE program. It put over 8,000 messages in my lost and found folder.
I can read most email messages and folders. When I try to erase files, some, not all of them, I get an error message that tells me to rerun the SCANPST.EXE file. It doesn't help to rerun it.
If I try to archive my folders I get errors. Some files are archived and some aren't. Typically, the files newer than 1/1/04 are not, although sometimes it does archive a few of them.
If I try to export the folders into separate PST files I get similar errors.
Are there any programs that don't cost an arm and a leg that can unscramble my file? Or at least let me export my files to another file?
Thanks for your help.
