Fix OST file issues and recover your inaccessible OST File data

Apr 14th 2015 at 10:32 PM


While working with offline folder files (OST files), you mostly face synchronization problems that further leads to inaccessibility of OST file. To work properly with MS Outlook using OST file, automatic synchronization of OST file with Exchange server is necessary. In case of any software or hardware error, your OST file may get corrupt or become inaccessible. A long term isolation of such OST file leads orphaned OST file i.e. such OST file cannot be used further and their email data cannot be accessed anymore. As those OST file contains your crucial email data so you cannot ignore their issues. Another reason of OST file corruption or inaccessibility is oversize of OST file. On exceeding file size limit, OST file undergoes corruption problems.

Whatever is the reason, you come across a great data disaster situation that must be resolved as soon as possible. But as soon as the MS outlook file size reaches the 2GB limit, the file becomes unresponsive. It is usually shown that when OST file approaches towards its maximum size limit, performance of your MS Outlook gets degraded. When you try to Send/Receive email messages then it takes more time. Thus, when you notice that your Outlook is not working properly then you must think about the size of OST file which is a very common cause. You might come across any of the error message given below, while trying to access these files:

"Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x00040820):'Errors in background synchronization. In most cases, further information is available in a synchronization log in the Deleted Items folder.”

Furthermore, OST file corruption issues affect its integrity and consistency. To get rid of all such errors, you can simply try OST integrity check tool (Scanost.exe).

Simple steps to repair corrupt/damaged OST file using Scanost.exe are as follows:

  1. Quit Outlook

  2. Open Scanost.exe, located in “drive:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOFFICE12”

  3. Select and Click the profile that includes the required OST file.

  4. Opt for Repair Errors check box.

  5. Click on “Begin Scan”.

Before using this tool, you must be sure that OST Integrity Check utility (Scanost.exe) is not present in MS Outlook 2010 and 2013. So, if you are using MS Outlook 2010 and later versions then you cannot apply it on your corrupt OST file. Before using this utility, you should create an updated backup of your OST file, if it’s possible because some part of your OST file data may get lost. This free utility is able to fix only minor OST file issues related to integrity but it cannot resolve all existing minor and severe OST file issues. So, there is no guarantee that you will get your expected result with OST integrity check tool (Scanost.exe).

To get the best possible result, you are recommended to look for a third party OST recovery tool. Among them, Kernel for OST to PST is a preferred tool. It is much advanced and fixes all existing errors of your OST file and converts them into Outlook PST format. While recovering OST file data, it performs a thorough scanning of the infected OST file and converts them into PST format so that you can easily access email messages, posts, appointments, contacts, tasks, distribution lists, task requests, journals, meeting requests and notes found in the OST file.
