Drawbacks of Microsoft ScanPST as corrupted .pst files repair tool
Even though Microsoft ScanPST was designed as a free .pst files recovery utilitário de, it is unable to repair some types of PST corrompido arquivos.
- MS ScanPST can only check .pst file for integrity. No other checks are run by this software and therefore, it is unable to address such characteristic issues of the Outlook storages as recovery of overflowing 2GB .pst files.
- This software is not designed to deal with additional tasks, such as password protected .pst recovery or recovery of erroneously deleted email messages.
Its main disadvantage though is hidden in the very principle of the program’;s operation. MS ScanPST .pst files recovery process is based on the structure of the source file of the Outlook’;s personal folders. It means that in order to repair a corrupted .pst file this program goes only by the file’;s header (a part of the file, where the basic information about the whole personal folders file is stored). If .pst file’;s data does not match the information in the header, the data will be simply deleted by the program. Errors “;repaired”; in this fashion can make the .pst file structure undetectable, causing Outlook to generate error messages like the following: “;The file xxxx.pst is not a personal folders file”;.
If you are still going to try MS ScanPST, we strongly recommend creating a backup copy of the personal folders file.
As a saying goes, there’;s no such thing as a free lunch. Outlook Recovery Wizard is not claiming to be a free .pst recovery tool. Isto .pst repair tool is distributed as shareware. In return, it can boast wide functionality, performing both basic (such as the recovery of emails, contatos, tarefas, notas, etc.) and additional tasks (as the recovery of password protected PST arquivos). Using a number of recovery algorithms this software puts together and saves as many scattered crumbs of information as possible, literally repairing corrupted .pst files.
