Product Review – Stellar Repair for Outlook
There are situations when Outlook users may fail to access their email account or open/import mail items due to PST file corruption or damage caused by the abrupt shutdown, system crash, virus or malware intrusion, etc.
A PST file is also prone to corruption or damage due to its large size (oversizing). When PST file exceeds the recommended 20GB limit, Outlook becomes slow and takes longer to retrieve information or send/receive emails.
Slow Outlook performance, delay in sending or receiving emails, slow search results, frequent freeze, etc., are early signs of inconsistent PST files. If overlooked and not fixed, it may result in PST corruption and data loss.
Once the PST file corrupts, Outlook may display errors, such as xxx.pst is not an Outlook data file, preventing users from accessing their mailbox or sending/receiving new emails.
Although Microsoft provides an Inbox Repair tool, such as SCANPST.EXE, to repair the damaged PST file, it may fail if the PST file is larger than 2GB or severely corrupt.
In such cases, you need an advanced Inbox Repair tool, such as Stellar Repair for Outlook.
In this article, we will review the Stellar Repair for Outlook software and demonstrate how you can use it to repair severely damaged or encrypted PST files to recover all mail items.
