Recover Data From Inaccessible PST File

The software assures complete data recovery from PST files that has gone inaccessible due to errors like ‘Folder is Full’, ‘The Outlook xxx.pst file is not a Personal Storage Folder’.

Scanning Options for PST File

The tool has two options to scan PST files: Quick Scan (for PST preview in less time) and Advance Scan (when file has intense damage issue).

Preview Emails with Attachments

PST file contents (emails, contacts, calendars etc) can be viewed in the software panel with the tool.

Multiple Export Options

Recovered data from Outlook PST file can be exported to PST, EML, and MSG file format.

Selective Items Export

        Emails and other items can be selected for export. This is possible by enabling the check boxes for items on preview pane.

        Selected folders from PST file can be exported to desired file format. Folders selection can be made in the Export As window of the tool.

Email Filters to Exclude Unwanted Data

The tool includes date filter using which emails sent/received within defined intervals can be exported.

Split Large PST File

The resultant PST file can be divided into sections by size. This helps to manage oversized PST file or large sized PST that is likely to affect Outlook performance.

Naming Conventions for Emails

For sorting emails saved in EML or MSG file format, the tool has seven different naming conventions.

What Makes the Tool Stable and Worth Investment:

Permanently Deleted Items Recovery: Using the “Advance Scan” option in the tool, hard deleted items from PST file can be recovered.

Simple GUI gives Ease at Operability:

The tool has interface similar to Outlook that makes it easy for users to operate the tool for corrupt PST file data recovery. 

Fix Errors that Makes PST Inaccessible:

The software performs read-only operation on source PST file and extracts data from it into a healthy PST file.

PST Splitting and Naming Convention

The option to split PST file works absolutely well in case of large PST file. Plus, different naming conventions give a way to manage single mails saved in EML or MSG file.

The Scope of Improvement in Tool:

Although the tool is very good at its basic functioning, i.e. retrieving data from corrupt PST file but it could be better if some more facilities are added into it. For example:

  • Auto-Detection of PST File:

A normal user might not know default location of PST file or where is an orphaned PST saved in the system. For them, auto-detecting PST option can be embedded in the tool.

There are times when emails from a specific sender with specific keyword have to be filtered out. Such option helps in filtering our required data from bulk database.

Final Verdict:

Personal Storage Tables (PST) which is the database file of Outlook is like any other file stored on hard disk. It can get corrupt due to abnormal conditions like virus attack, power fluctuations, file mishandling etc. For any of the reasons that make a PST file inaccessible, reverting back users with errors, SysTools OutlookPST Recovery software can help.

The tool works perfectly well as far as restoring data from PST file is concerned. My rating for the tool is 8.5/10.
