“Errors have been detected in the file” ?

Today when I tried to open one of the outlook PST file that I guess was damaged or corrupted, I saw an error message. It states, Errors have been detected in the file xxxx.pst. Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool(Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and repair errors in the file. For more information about the Inbox repair tool, see Help. xxxx.pst is the name of the PST file. What can I need to do now?

Answer 1

Hi. The PST files are like the bank\'s locker where you store all your important assets. The PST file is composed of two parts. First is the File Header and second is the Data Part. The File header contains the most important information about the whole file like the file signature, file size, compatibility etc.

When we attempt to open the PST file then Microsoft outlook first check the header part to verify its information like file signature as the compatibility information. After successful verification it reads the complete data part and if there are any error in that part then it will report above mentioned error report.

If the error is occurred due to the corruption in the header part then the inbox repair tool also known as scanpst.exe will easily solve the problem. But if any kind of problem occurred in the data part then the scanpst.exe will unable to solve the problem and you need to take the help of the professional Data Recovery software for outlook. One of them is the outlook PST Repair that can repair and recover the corrupted PST files very easily and effectively without asking for the reasons of the corruption. It can provide you the best results and after successful recovery you can again able to open those corrupted PST files.
