ScanOST.exe / ScanPST.exe missing

The Inbox repair tool (scanpst.exe) is designed to help repair problems with Offline (.ost) and Personal Folder (.pst) files.

On occasion these can corrupt stopping you from viewing email completely, or simply having some emails go missing.


There is a scenario where this tool isn’t available to find through the normal avenues (Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft\Office##)


To find and run this tool you can simply download the Microsoft Fix it as below;

For Microsoft Outlook 2013 click here

For Microsoft Outlook 2010, 2007, 2003, 2002 or 2000 click here


I hope you are able to recover and view emails using this handy tool from Microsoft.

Kind Regards

    This FixIt does not appear to work on Windows 8.1, even though I’m running Outlook 2007.
