The Outlook Repair Tool (Scanpst.exe) is a powerful tool designed to diagnose and repair errors in Outlook data files. It can be used on all versions of Outlook, and is a great way to troubleshoot issues with your Outlook application. To use the tool, first close Microsoft Outlook and open the Scanpst.exe file. Then open Outlook and log in with your profile, select the Go menu, and launch the Inbox Repair Tool.
The tool will then check your Outlook data files to see if they are healthy. If the Inbox Repair Tool finds any issues, it will go through 8 phases of repair. When the repair is finished, start Outlook with the profile associated with the Outlook data file you just repaired. If you are still receiving repair prompts after a successful repair, it is possible that the registry key “PromptRepair” was not deleted after repair. If you are unable to start the Inbox Repair tool automatically or manually, you can try to repair the Office application.
If you are no longer able to access the pst file in Outlook and the pst file cannot be repaired for the Inbox Repair Tool, you will have to restore it from a backup or use a third-party recovery tool. The Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant can also be used to repair your Outlook application. To do this, download and install Microsoft Support and Recovery and then run the Outlook and Repair Wizard. After pressing the Repair button, the actual repair process will start and go through all 8 phases again. Using the Outlook Repair Tool is an effective way to diagnose and repair errors in your Outlook data files. It can help you troubleshoot issues with your Outlook application, restore corrupted files from backups or third-party recovery tools, and repair your Office application if necessary.
