ScanPst cannot helps


First of all you need to backup a corrupted .pst file before use other tools. All other tools attempt to read a source file. After reading you'll see a recovered messages in a tool. Later you can select a best recovery tool for your case of damages. I selected Convert OST to PST because it shows +10% of messages from my .pst file.

Outlook Express data missing.


Offer several options.
1 As the .dbx file for the account has been lost, then you need a data recovery software to recover back that .dbx file. As the email recovery software comes into action when you have an .dbx file where the email recovery software can scan that file and then extract emails from that.
Your case is different, you have lost your .dbx file which means you cannot retrieve your emails.
To recover the .DBX file, through OE-Mail Recovery http://www.oemailrecovery.com/outlook-express-recovery.html
This data recovery software recoveres every file which was recently deleted or was deleted long time back. It can also recover files if your partition has been formatted, deleted or recreated.

Give it a try as it had helped me when the same case happened with me when i had lost my .dbx files.
2 You may need to unhide hidden files to see them. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.


Try also to restore the file using this online service. I found it in Google. https://onlinefilerepair.com/en/outlookexpress-repair-online.html

Click the Start button.

When the scan is finished a file, select Create a backup copy of the file before restoring.

If the file has been successfully restored, a message is displayed that the recovery is complete. If using a recovery program "Inbox" file is not recovered, you will need to use a backup file.

Or try to recover files through the program Outlook Repair Kit. She saved me many times.
