Default Outlook Data File Corruption

I hope I can get all my Outlook 2016 files, and whatever back.



Here's the story, Outlook 2016 suddenly quit, the error screen said 'if you continue to see this mssg, select 'create new data file to make a backup copy of your existing outlook file'

so that's what I did. Now when I try and open OLook I get 'Cannot start MS Outlook ... errors have been detected'



I'm on a Win 7 machine if that matters,

really hope someone can help with this one!

Try the 'Repair Office' functionality. Your profile says Office 2007 but your post is about Outlook 2016, so the exact steps may vary—I don't remember O2007 anymore

Going thru the uninstall Office routine should offer the Repair function, I think.

Repair an Outlook data file (.pst) file
Exit Outlook and browse to one of the following file locations:

Outlook 2016: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16

Open SCANPST.EXE.

Select Browse to select the Outlook Data File (.pst) you want to scan. If you need help locating your Outlook Data File, see Locating the Outlook Data Files.

Note: By default, a new log file is created 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.

Choose Start to begin the scan.

If the scan finds errors, choose Repair to start the process to fix them.

Shows results of scanned Outlook .pst data file using the Microsoft Inbox Repair tool, SCANPST.EXE

Note: The scan creates a backup file during the repair process. To change the default name or location of this backup file, in the Enter name of backup file box, enter a new name, or choose Browse to select the file you want to use. You may need to run the tool several times in order to repair your Outlook Data File. In some cases, items may not be recovered if they were permanently deleted or corrupted beyond repair.

When the repair is complete, start Outlook with the profile associated with the Outlook Data File you just repaired.

Once you`re done with repairing the outlook file for office 365

In the Folder Pane, you might see a folder named Recovered Personal Folders that contains your default Outlook folders or a Lost and Found folder. Although the repair process might recreate some of the folders, they may be empty. The Lost and Found folder contains any folders and items recovered by the repair tool that Outlook can't place in their original structure.

Create new data file

You can create a new Outlook Data File and drag the items in the Lost and Found folder into the new data file. After you've moved all the items, you can remove the Recovered Personal Folders (.pst) file, including the Lost and Found folder. To create a new Outlook Data File, see Create an Outlook Data File.

Recover items from the backup (.bak) file

If you can open the original Outlook Data File, you might be able to recover additional items. The Inbox Repair tool creates a backup file with the same name as the original, but with a .bak extension, and saves it in the same folder. There may be items in the backup file that you might be able to recover that the Inbox Repair tool couldn't.

Browse to the folder where the .pst file is stored and you'll find the .bak file (for example, kerimills01@ outlook. com.bak) created by the Inbox Repair tool.

Make a copy of the .bak file and rename it with a bak.pst extension. For example, kerimills01@ outlook. com.bak.pst.

Import the bak.pst file into Outlook, and use the Import and Export Wizard to import any additional recovered items into the newly created .pst file.


Regards,
Adrian
