It could happen to anyone: one morning you’re sitting down at your computer to check your email and you get an error message from Outlook, preventing you from opening all of your files.  What has typically happened in this situation is that your .PST file has gotten corrupted or damaged in some way.  It’s not incredibly common but it can and does happen, for a variety of reasons.  The good news, however, is that you can often fix this problem with a few quick steps, and recover most if not all of your emails and other sensitive data you had stored in Outlook.

This is where Stellar Outlook PST Repair comes in.  It’s a third party standalone software tool that has been designed from the ground up to help people fix and recover their .pst files that have become damaged from viruses, malware, incomplete shutdowns, going over the 2gb file limit, and more.  This program is our top choice pick for PST repair software.

Even better, you can download and run the software in a preview version to see if it will help fix your problem before you buy it.  To see if this program will work for you simply download the software from their main site:

Ease Of Use

Thankfully this software tool is pretty darn easy to use.  You don’t have to be a computer tech or even that good with computers.  If you can open a program and run it, there’s a good chance you can fix your .PST file quickly and easily using Stellar Outlook PST Repair.  The software itself was designed to look and feel similar to the Outlook interface so as to avoid confusion for people who are using it.

Here you can see how simple the interface is, and how clean and easy to read the results are.  Once the scan is complete you can see the results of all that the program has recovered in the left hand pane, and you can view a preview on the right.  You can then select what you want restored in the new file (usually everything) and save the entire thing as a new .pst.

Effectiveness And Features

Don’t let the ease of use fool you; this software program is robust enough that many computer techs have it in their repair toolbox.  We’ve heard several accounts of this software fixing .PST issues where other methods had failed (such as using scanpst.exe).

The software uses a “non destructive” method of fixing .pst files by never harming your original file; it simply reads the data of your original file and creates a new file.  This way your data is never in danger of being harmed.

Stellar Outlook features several different aspects:

  • Corrupted PST Recovery – recovers even most corrupted files
  • Mailbox Recovery – allows you to recover your mailboxes as well as other components such as journal entries, calendar entries, and more
  • Deleted Email Recovery – whether accidental or on purpose, you can recover any and all deleted emails using this software
  • Encrypted PST Recovery – even if your .pst was password protected, this software can help you out
  • Selective Recovery – upon recovery you can search for a specific email from the list of all emails recovered using criteria such as sender, date, recipient, etc.
  • Save The PST In Any Location – save your repaired .pst anywhere you like
  • Fix .pst files larger than 2GB – this is a common problem for users – when the file has grown over 2gb Windows will stop reading the file.

Several of these features are incidental, such as saving the file anywhere and searching through your list of email.  The point is, this program works well at repairing and recovering your Outlook email and .pst files.

It Works

Perhaps the best gauge of effectiveness is to see how it has worked for other people.  There are several examples of people praising the software on forums and other places, such as these examples that we took screenshots of:
