Microsoft 365 Outlook (Win 95 home). I am getting repeated errors with SCANPST.EXE. What is the approach/recommendation to repairing Outlook PST (about 80 MB) file? I've tried demo versions of several programs. They all seem to create a new PST file.

After running SCANPST multiple times I still get the errors (see log attached). Any good PST scan/repair software recommendations? Or just ignore the SCANPST error messages? (Outlook seems to run ok otherwise).

Thanks for any suggestions.

You will always have errors in the pst - it's a database and they are always "dirty". Most errors will be minor and Outlook will fix them automatically.

We recommend running scanpst 3 times in a row - the last pass will find errors but probably not enough to fix. The only time you really need a 3rd party utility is if the pst won't open and scanpst can't fix it.
