Hello guys,

I am in big trouble, as my old .ost file shows error when i open that. Last month, there was some issue with my MS Outlook and it breaks connection with Exchange server. I think that is the reason for my OST file corruption.

Please suggest me any tool/software which can resolve my issue ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

The recommended solution for ost corruption is to delete the ost and let outlook rebuild it. If it continually becomes corrupt, examine the applications that are accessing it - virus scanners etc - and change their settings to skip the ost.

If, for some reason, you'd rather try and rescue the data file instead of creating a fresh copy, See http://www.slipstick.com/problems/pst-repair/repair-a-damaged-personal-folders-pst-file/ for utilities.

SCANOST.EXE (the Integrity check tool) is something which can be used to fix corruption from OST file. It is a built-in utility. Read about it on the Internet.

Thanks.
