PST File doesn't show subfolders under Inbox

HI,

We had to restore the operating system of a computer so we made a full backup using EASEUS for workstation then we recovered the PST file in order to use it in the formatted computer but after configuring the new email account and then linked to the recovered file, Oulook shows the inbox only with the email in it but not any subfolder or email there.

I have tried SCANPST tool, which reports that there are 42 Folders and 12105 elements with errors, so repairs the file but If I open Outlook the same issue is present again.

Either only the current folder was exported, an incorrect pet file was copied or the user had more than one post file and only one was copied.   There is not much that can be done unless you have a copy of the past files somewhere else.

The strange thing is that the recovered PST File has a big size with more than 6Gb and the Inbox, Sent, and Deleted folders have a few messages.
