  • Hello,

    The forum is for developers. I'd suggest asking non-programming questions on the Outlook IT Pro Discussions or Microsoft Answers forums instead. Be aware, you may find existing forum threads describing the same problem. If you try searching for repair pst you will see a lot of similar forum threads with answers. For example, some of them:

    Is that Inbox Repair tool? It's not that good for a corrupt PST file whose size is more than 2 GB. I hope you've resolved the issue successfully. But the Outlook users who face corruption in their PST files and the scanpst.exe utility fails, they should use a professional recovery solution. There are many vendors in the market which provide you such recovery solution.

    When I search "best PST repair tool" on Google, I found this article - http://wordpress.semnaitik.com/2016/01/15/best-pst-repair-tools/

    Through this article, you can compare top 5 PST repair tools available in the market. And the good thing is that most of such 3rd party tools are available with the free demo/trial version.

  • Hey, did you do it through scanpst.exe ? Scanpst.exe has few limitations like it fails to repair a file which is greater than 2 GB or the intensity of corruption is high. You need to go for more advanced PST repair tool like Stellar Toolkit for Outlook. Here you can easily repair your corrupt PST file and after repairing it you can split the PST file. Once you purchase it, you have the validity for lifetime. So in future when ever your PST gets heavy, you can anytime use this tool to split your PST or you can regularly split your PST file so that you dont face such problems again. Hope this will help you. Good Luck!!
