    I have the same problem. Outlook was backed up. Open data files and still cannot find emails and subfolders although the computer states it is there.

First of all create a new file and save it. See its extension. And replace that extension with your current outlook file extension.

Outlook pst file corrupted


Hi, christosperis

I already faced this issue and I got panicked at that time. I tried the inbox repair tool that comes with MS outlook but got no luck. So, I came to know about third party PST Repair Tool that can repair any corruption error in PST file. It's good that you backup your PST file before formatting. You can also try the inbox repair tool as some people say this tool works on minor corruption.
If your files still not recovered then I would suggest you use DataRecovo PST Recovery Tool that works super fast on corrupted PST file and somehow you can't able to recover your file then you can also take help from their support. This software also ensures a full refund policy if this tool doesn't help you. So, it's a safe and one-time investment as it comes with a lifetime warranty.

It also comes with a completely free (demo version) that you can try to check as even this free version can able to recover your 25 emails per folder.

Lost Outlook.pst files


If you happened to backup your pst files, you can restore them. Here is a knowledge base article from Microsoft on the subject:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287070

If you do not have a backup copy, you could try doing a system restore to a time before they were lost. System restore must be enabled on your computer to do this. Make sure to save and/or backup anything recent before doing this. To do a system restore in XP, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Then select a date that is available for restore and roll back to then.

Outlook1.pst file disappeared when installing updated drivers for LogitechQuickCam. I think they are related as QuickCam has some kind of mail interface. Can I get my e mails back? Jim Moore


could be a corrupted mail file,

just track down the folder where the file is 'normally' found, c:\documents and settings\user\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook (XP)

or c:\users\user\appdata\local\microsoft\outlook (Vista, 7)

make a copy of the file just in case, note the location you save the backup.
. now go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033

and run ScanPST.
navigate to the location where your PST is stored and click Start.

You have the option here to create a backup .bak file as well.
when this completes, you can try to open the PST file in Outlook again , via File > Open > Outlook Data File.

You can use this same method to scan .OST files that might be errored, or corrupted as well. OSTs are used with Exchange server accounts , also known as Offline STorage Files.

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.
