Scan PST Office 2010

Just a quick post on how to scan PST (or OST’s) files if they become corrupt or wont open:

The tool I’ll use is ScanPST.exe which is installed when you install Office 2010.

ScanPST.exe is located below with Office 2010:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\SCANPST.EXE

Open the tool and click Browse and find the PST you want to scan:


Then click Start, if the PST is large this can take a while:


If the PST can be fixed ScanPST will prompt you to backup it up before it attempts to fix it:


Click Repair.


That’s it done.  Try and open the PST or OST again from Outlook.

If the above didn’t work and I wouldnt be surprised if it doesn’t you could try Stella Phoenix PST report tool which is better and generally works!!
