Steps To Fix Outlook Data Corruption Issues

In this era of rapidly advancing technology, we may not be able to think about a life without emails. Emails or electronic mails have in all respect replaced the traditional mailing system from the usage of personal purpose for sending greetings and pictures to official purposes for sending business proposals. Most of us have multiple emails addresses; one for official purpose and one for personal, and it might be really difficult for you to manage both accounts simultaneously with ease. This is where email clients come in view. Email clients are programs developed for helping the users manage their email accounts easily and efficiently.

Microsoft Outlook is the most popular email manager program in use now. It is a versatile program that allows the users to manage their multiple email accounts with ease. You will be able to send and receive emails using the Outlook email manager program easily. However, even though the program is much versatile and retro in nature, there is still a chance for the presence of errors in the program. One of the most possible errors found in the Outlook program is the corruption of data stored in the .pst file.

A PST file is a file in which Outlook stores all the personal data of the user like emails, calendar entries etc in the computer. Once the file is corrupted, the Outlook program will not work well and you will need to run an Outlook repair process for fixing the issue. Lucky for you, Outlook contains in it an inbox repair tool that will help you in fixing the data corruption issues in Outlook. Below we discuss the steps for fixing the issue.
  • Navigate to the default Outlook folder in the computer and then look for the Scanpst.exe file. Double click on the file for running the Outlook inbox repair utility.
  • Now a new window will appear in the screen, click on the Start button found in the window for scanning the system for Outlook errors and corruptions.
  • Once the program has successfully listed the corrupted Outlook data files, click on the Repair button found in the window for starting the Outlook repair process.
The inbox repair tool will now automatically fix all the corrupted Outlook files in your system and you will be able to use the program as if it is new without any issues. However if the issue was not solved by the inbox repair tool, you will have to contact the Outlook support team.
