Recover emails from a broken PST file.



Hi, I am putting this request in from a friend who has the following issue:

I would like to know if anyone has access to
the draft of the .pst specification/standard that Microsoft has
promised to release early next year.

I need this so that I can recover emails from a broken pst file. This
file cannot be recovered with scanpst or linux tools such as those
within the libpff library nor libpst. This file was carved out from a
disk and perhaps not chained properly - i.e., may be not complete or
contain improper clusters. I receive multiple errors in regards to
wrong checksum as well as root nodes, etc. Without knowing how this
pst table is structured, there is no way I can retrieve emails from it.

Can anyone assist in this?
Many thanks, regards Peter.


You can try a tool called Advanced Outlook Repair. You can download a
free demo version at . I think
it is a useful repair tool for you. It is easy to recover your PST
file by using its wizard. It is a powerful tool to recover messages,
folders and other objects from corrupt or damaged Microsoft Outlook
PST files.

Detailed information about Advanced Outlook Repair can be found at
