    • Outlook 2013: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice15
    • Outlook 2010: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice14

  3. Now open SCANPST.EXE. and either manually enter the name of the .pst file you want to check, or choose Browse to select it. (This will create a new log file during the scan. You can choose Options and opt not to have a log created, or you can have the results appended to an existing log file.)
  4. Choose Start to begin the scan.
  5. If the scan finds errors, choose Repair to fix these.
  6. Once the repair is complete, start Outlook with the profile associated with the Outlook Data File you just repaired.
