Easy way to get rid of corrupted PST Files on outlook.

Corrupted PST files are the most error I've encountered in outlook. Many apps in the market offer a PST repair tools some are paid some are free. Microsoft outlook itself has a built-in repair tool. But in my experience, most of this apps cannot fix all outlook error.

What causes the corrupted PST files?

  • Exiting outlook apps while still on send/receive - Do not exit your outlook when the send or receive process is ongoing.
  • Improper shutdown of your computer
  • hard disk error
  • Too large attachment files

What I really do to solve corrupted PST Files is to create new Data files and import all messages from old corrupted PST to newly created. By doing this you have a fresh PST files and you don't need to download any repair tools.

To create new PST (Personal folder) file.

Open your outlook, Go to Tools > Account settings > Data files TAB click ADD
After you create select your new data files then click set it as default

To import your old messages to new PST files.

On Outlook , Go to File > import and export > import from another file or program > personal folder file(pst) > then select the pst source and destination .
