PST Repair Software

I am trying to repair Archive PST files which are nearly 20GB. I was trying to split it but its saying it's corrupt. Can anyone recommend a good repair tool. I don't mind paying for the software if it's good.

Please note scanpst/scanost are sometimes not easy to find..

If you search for scanpst you should be able to find it..

Also, there has been one or two occasions where I would need to pull these files from the installation.

I could not find it. I ended up buying Steller Pheonix Oulook PST Rpair, because I need to repair this desperately. I will let you know how it goes.
In Office 2010 ScanPST.exe can be found here ==> C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\scanpst.exe

To find it on your PC, go to a command prompt and type:
dir scan?st*.exe /s/p

Open in new window

This will find all copies of ScanPST and ScanOST installed on your PC.

Hope this helps

It is a good tool and should resolve your issues with any luck.  I have a copy and use it from time to time.

Update. None of the repair tools I bought worked to the way that I wanted. I ended up going through the emails manually and that did the job. Thank you for participation.
