    Default Microsoft Outlook PST file cannot repair

    Experts,

    I have a user, who has left the company, however the manager of the department needs to view this user's outlook pst file. The pst file is 3.4gb. When we try to attach the pst file to outlook, it gives us an error message, saying something about the pst needing repair.

    I ran the scanpst.exe program to repair the pst file. The repair program gets so far then just freezes ... task manager says that the program is not responding.

    Help ... is there another way to repair this pst file? Is there a website that offers a repair tool other than (better than) the standard scanpst.exe. Are there any 3rd party tools that you recommend that I could purchase?

    We are using Microsoft Outlook 2007. Our OS is Windows XP SP3. The pst file is standard run-of-the-mill pst file, nothing fancy about the file, except is probably is too large.
    Thanks.

    There are only two solution to repair the corrupted PST files, first to repair file with the help of Inbox Repair tool (Scanpst.exe) and other is to use any third party tool. But, if you've used the Scanpst.exe process then, now it's a time to get the online tools. Some are best tools are, SysInfoTools, kernels, etc.

    Thank you for pointing out the obvious....
    Of course you have to use something else if scanpst.exe doesn´t help...

    But posting

    does not help anyone since you did not post the full name of any tool, nor links to them.

    There are several "PST-tools" available on the web, some from questionable webbsites,
    and some classified as malware, they might be dangerous to use....

    You can search with the help of these names like "SysInfoTools PST recovery tool, kernel PST recovery tool, etc.)

    Note from Moderator: I edited your post because the quoting you did made it very confusing to read since my quote from your post was missing.
    I added that quote.

    Telling people to do a search for
    names like "SysInfoTools PST recovery tool, kernel PST recovery tool, etc.)
    does not help much.

    If you have a suggestion about software for solving a problem then post the full name and a link to it !

    But as i already said above: There are several "PST-tools" available on the web, some from questionable webbsites,
    and some classified as malware, they might be dangerous to use....

    Okay, thanks for a suggestion. I will keep it on mind and will post the full name or address of any software, which is really helpful to the user or a reader.
