How to repair Outlook folders using the Inbox Repair Tool


Inbox repair tool(scanpst) is the best tool that can be used when you are finding any difficulties to connect your inbox folders or pst files or it is reporting that your Inbox folders or Outlook PST file may be damaged in Microsoft Office Outlook 2000 (or higher).Scanpst is a tiny tool installed by default when installing Microsoft Office 2000 or higher.

PST files or Personal Folder Files are used by Microsoft Outlook for storing Outlook data, including mailbox files, email folders, contacts or any other personal data related to Microsoft Outlook.

By default, Microsoft Outlook stored these PST files at the following location:

"C:Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook",

where USER_NAME is your Windows logon name.

The default PST filename for your active mailbox is Outlook.pst, while the archive file is stored as archive.pst.

"Before doing any types of repairing pls keep a back up of the pst files"

Using Inbox repairing tool

By default, Microsoft Outlook will install the Scanpst.exe file within your Program Files folder, in 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI1033'.

If you can't find the Inbox Repair Tool, you can download it from here then copy it to the above folder.

Make sure Microsoft Outlook is not running when you try to run the Inbox Repair Tool. When starting it, you should see the following screen:

If you get an error message like the following one:

7a9f6cb.jpg
then make sure you copied the Scanpst.exe file to the right location. If you still have problems running it, then search your hard disk for a file named "CNFNOT32.EXE" then run it: it should unpack and copy the Scanpst.exe file to its default path ('C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI1033').

Once you started the Inbox Repair Tool, use the Browse button to select your personal PST file. Remember, its default location is "C:Documents and SettingsUSER_NAMELocal SettingsApplication

DataMicrosoftOutlook",(It can be vary depending on how where you configured the pst files). where USER_NAME is your Windows logon name. Then click on the Start button. When the scanning process is done, you should see a notification screen like the following one:

Make sure you mark the checkbox for making a backup of the scanned file, then click on the "Repair" button. When this process is done, you should be able to properly start Outlook and use your recovered personal Outlook folders

How to Import PST file to Outlook


PST file or Personal Storage Table (.pst) is a file format used to store copies of messages, calendar data, notes and other personal setting in Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Exchange Client, and Windows Messaging. Prior to Outlook 2003, the maximum storage capacity of .pst file was of 2GB. The PST file keeps on changing its size with the arrival of new e-mails and deleting of old e-mails. Once the PST file size grows more than 2GB, the file would become unusable. Now Microsoft provides a tool named as PST2GB, which is used to truncate a PST file larger than 2 GB. After Outlook 2003 and in later versions, PST files are created using the Unicode format and have storage capacity of 20 GB.

Storing of data is very important especially in the age of hackers. You never know when you hardware crashes or the file becomes corrupted. Also, back up is required in case you shift your work to a different computer. You can import your new PST file to Outlook using the application’s interface. Let us have a look at the sequential procedure to import your PST file to Outlook in a different computer:

Step 1: Copy the PST file to the hard drive of the computer in which you have the Outlook application. If you have stored your PST file in a removable media or any CD/DVD-ROM, copy it to the local hard drive of the computer

Step 2: Right-click on the icon of PST file and select Properties

Step 3: Make sure that you have unchecked the Read-only box to be able to save the file. If you open the file in read only mode, you will only be able to read e-mail but not save them

Step 4: Start Microsoft Outlook either by clicking on the Outlook icon present on the desktop by finding the icon on Start-> All Programs->Microsoft Office -> Microsoft Office Outlook

Step 5: Click on the File Menu on the top of the screen

Step 6: Select “Import And Export -> Import from another program or file”. Once the window is open click on the “Next” button.

Step 7: A new window is open and select “Personal Folder File (.pst)" out of the multiple options. Click on Next-> Browse button. Find the location where you have save the PST file.

Step 8: Click “Next” followed by clicking “Finish” to finish the importing process. Restart the outlook to find all your e-mails and contacts stored.

HI GOOD EVENING I AM UNABLE TO COPY MY MICROSOFT OUTLOOK 2007 PST FILE TO EXTERNAL HARD DISK. AFTER STARTING COPY FEW MINUTES LATER I FACE THE FOLLOWING PROBLUM CANNOT COPY OUTLOOK:DATA ERROR(CYCLIC...


A "CRC" (Cyclic Redundancy Check) is caused by an disk-drive error.

When you write a "block' of data to your disk-drive, a CRC value is calculated, and is also written to the disk. When you try to read that "block" of data, the CRC value is also read from the disk,
and a new CRC is calculated from the data. If the "new" CRC does not match the "old" CRC, then you have a "check" condition -- either the data was not written correctly, or the data could not be read correctly.

Now, did the "check" message refer to the "source" of the copying operation (namely your 'C:' drive) , or the "target"(namely the external drive) ???

Try to copy the PST file to another file on your 'C:' drive.
If you do not see the "check", then it is the external disk-drive that has a problem.
If you do see the "check", then open Outlook, create a new folder,
and copy a group of messages into the new folder. If Outlook reports that one of the messages could not be copied, then the disk-space occupied by that message is faulty, and must be excluded.

Can not copy outlook messages


It looks like your external hard disk in FAT32 system and outlook messages file .PST is more then 4GB.

To know the file system of the Hard Disk right click on the drive select properties.

Check your file system first. FAT32 will not support more than file size of 4GB.

There are 2 options to copy.

1. Split the .PST in to 2 or more outlook data file

or

2. Convert the FAT32 System to NTFS.

To convert from FAT32 to NTFS. go to following link

Coverter for Outlook 2007 pst file


First you'll have to save the PST files to removable media (CD, flash drive, etc.) then you'll have to use a copy of Outlook 2003 to save the file in Office 97-2002 format. If you don't have Office 2003, try your local library or you could buy a copy (they're really inexpensive, if used) on the internet (eBay, Craig's List, etc.).

Outlook pst file creation and export


All your mail, your contacts, your calendars, and almost every other detail of your life is in Outlook. To make sure you don't lose all this in case of a hard disk crash or some other disaster, you can create backup copies of your Personal Folders (.pst) files — that's where Outlook stores all the essential data.
Back Up or Copy Your Outlook Mail, Contacts and Other Data To create a copy of your mail, contacts, calendar and other data in Outlook for backup or copying:
  • Go to your Outlook folder in Windows Explorer.
  • Highlight all files ending in ".pst".
    • Make sure in particular your selection includes "outlook.pst" and "archive.pst".
  • Select Edit | Copy from the menu to copy them.
  • Open the folder where you want to put your backup copies in Windows Explorer.
    • Ideally, this will be on another computer, on a removable disk stored far away from your home, somewhere on the Internet, or at least on a different hard disk.
  • Select Edit | Paste from the menu to paste your .pst files to the backup location
Restore from Your Outlook Backup Your backup copy of Outlook data is now in place, ready to be restored when you need it.


Restore Outlook Mail, Contacts and Other Data from a Backup To restore your mail, contacts and other data from a backup copy of an Outlook PST file:
  • Select File | Import and Export... from the menu in Outlook.
  • Select Import from another program or file.
  • Click Next.
  • Highlight Personal Folder File (PST).
  • Click Next again.
  • Now use the Browse button to select the backup copy of the PST file you want to recover from your backup location.
  • Make sure Replace duplicates with items imported is selected.
  • Click Next.
  • Finish the import process with Finish.
Usually, the default import settings work fine, but you may want to tweak them to suit your needs.
