While there isn't much you can do about Outlook problems, you can certainly control the speed and comprehensiveness of its recovery, especially in terms of the data stored in it. And that's exactly why we will be talking about the Stellar Toolkit for Outlook, a popular tool for retrieving data from corrupted Outlook files.

What is Stellar Toolkit for Outlook?

As the name suggests, this is a comprehensive tool for repairing many Outlook errors. Coming from the stables of Stellar, a company renowned for repair tools, this product also has an intuitive user interface that masks the complexity of the data retrieval process from corrupted data files.

Used by millions of individuals and businesses the world over, this product is easy to use and simple to install. At the same time, it consistently retrieves data from corrupted and malfunctioning Outlook programs, thereby making it a must-have tool for anyone who uses Outlook extensively.

Where can you Use the Stellar Toolkit for Outlook?

So, when should you use this tool?

Let's step back a bit to understand how Outlook works before we answer this question.

All your emails and their attachments, calendars, tasks, contacts, and just about any data related to Outlook are stored on a file with a PST extension. Unfortunately, this file can get corrupted when the size of data is more than what it can store or due to any other reason.

When this file becomes corrupted, the data contained in it becomes unreachable. Also, your Outlook may not even start because it is unable to access the data contained in the PST file and load it to the Outlook application.

Many errors related to Outlook not starting or opening can be attributed to this corrupted PST file. What's worse is, the data contained in this file can be permanently lost and this can include important documents, correspondence, attachments, and more.

The good news is that Microsoft offers a built-in utility called Inbox Repair Tool (SCANPST.EXE) that can scan the PST file and retrieve data from it. However, the bad news is that it can only fix mild corruption issues and will be unable to handle moderate to severe corruption of these PST files. In fact, the SCANPST is designed to handle only a few use-cases.

This is where the Stellar Toolkit for Outlook comes in, as it can handle corruption of all stages. Essentially, this tool scans the corrupted PST file, retrieves its content, and displays the same to you. From this list, you can decide what data should be retrieved, and accordingly, this tool will retrieve the selected data, and move it to a new PST file.

You also have the option to export the retrieved data to another format such as PDF, HTML, XML, and more.

In all, you can retrieve 100% of data from corrupted PST files with the Stellar Toolkit for Outlook. With this tool, you can,

  • Merge the different Outlook data files and combine them into a single file
  • Splitter for Outlook: Split the large PST file by size and/or timestamp, so they can be converted into smaller and more manageable files
  • Compact the PST file for easy accessibility
  • Recover your passwords quickly and safely.
  • Undelete the Outlook content. In particular, you can recover your deleted emails, regardless of whether it was done accidentally or on purpose
  • Remove duplicate values for convenience and to save on storage space.

Working of the Stellar Toolkit for Outlook

Now that you know what the Stellar Toolkit for Outlook is including its features, let's take a more detailed look into how it works.

First off, download the tool, and run it. The startup wizard will take you through the installation process and will set it up for you. Once you install the tool, open it, and you'll be prompted for a PST file. Navigate through its file explorer and select the corrupted PST file. You can also drag and drop the file if that works better for you. Finally, click the repair button and sit back.

The Stellar Toolkit for Outlook will extract the data from the corrupted file and will display it on the left-hand pane. This process can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the PST file.

From the displayed items, select the ones you want to be retrieved and in the file format, the tool will automatically create a file with the extension you chose and will move the selected data to it. It is really that simple!
