We have a corrupt office 2013, or more specifically Outlook.  I've tried the "repair" and it is done within 1 minute so I know that it actually didn't do a repair.

I'm planning on uninstalling Office and reinstalling it.  I have a major concern of losing the additional folders that the user has created.  She is the Executive secretary and I can't risk anything being lost.

Your advice will be appreciated.  Also if you think there is possibly another way to fix it, I'm open to suggestion.  Below is the error.
