How Does Inbox Repair Tool (ScanPST.exe) Work ?

When you use Inbox Repair Tool or scanpst.exe to repair your PST file, it will first create a backup of your original corrupted pst file with .bak extension automatically. You can use this backup pst file with the extension .bak and change it to .pst in case you need it later. The Inbox Repair Tool will then analyse your Personal Folders (.pst) file directory structure and item headers to try to recover all folders and items. ScanPST.exe actually validates and corrects errors in the internal data structures of your Outlook .pst file. The Microsoft Outlook pst file is a database file. So the Inbox Repair Tool will check the PST file structures, like BTrees and reference counts,etc and repair them as required. These low-level objects however have no knowledge of the upper-level structures, such as messages, calendar items, and so on, that are built upon them. When ScanPST determines that a specific block of the structure or a table is unreadable or corrupted, ScanPST removes it. If that block happens to be part of a specific item in your Outlook, then that item will also be removed when it is validated. Although, you may not expect this behavior, the removal of this item is appropriate in the given circumstances. Thus you can see that Scanpst.exe actually modifies your Outlook PST file and that is why it makes a backup file or your original pst file. You can find the scanpst log file which will reflect everything that scanpst.exe has carried out on your pst file. After you run "ScanPST.exe" or the Inbox Repair Tool and restart Your MS Outlook, to see a list of all the recovered folders listed in the left navigation pane in Outlook. The next step is to move the recovered items to a new Personal Folders (.pst) file in your profile.
