Yesterday night, I was busy in some official works and suddenly I have to go for another work. Today I shocked when my outlook pst file cannot opened and an unknown error message has occurred. 0x80040116. it makes me so unhappy when I’m unable to access pst file because all mails and other information saved here. I faced error message “Outlook.pst cannot be accessed – 0x80040116”. Then remembered me before sometime my colleague also faced this type of outlook pst file error message and seniors help him.
I discussed this scenario with my seniors and they told me pst file was corrupted. They were faced pst file error messages many times and they were familiar with corruption solving method. Now, I understood that issues can be solved and after solving error message then only pst file can be accessed. As they told me I have to solve this as soon as possible, so the data cannot be overwritten. They advised me restore pst file from backup but I don’t have any backup. I was so worried and thinking next time always maintain backup for outlook. As they told, I use scanpst.exe tool and allow it to work properly.
Scanpst.exe is an inbuilt pst repair tool which provide by Microsoft Outlook. It is also known as Inbox Repair Tool. As advised, before using this tool I’ll surely exit from Microsoft outlook and follow some simple steps:
- Enable or check 'Show hidden files and folders' option.
- Click 'Start' and choose 'Search' option. Type 'Scanpst.exe' in Search box.
- Double-click the Scanpst.exe and open the utility.
- Browse to the PST file and click Start.
- Click OK.
Most of time these simple steps successfully repaired error message problem of pst file but this time it was not helpful for me. Error message problem as it is. Inbox repair tool fails to repair corrupted outlook file and now I have to go with next option to get my data back.
