    If you want to know why people use the Outlook PST Repair tool instead of ScanPST.exe because it is easy to use and has no limitation. The ScanPST.exe has limitations to repair the PST file and not a safe option. You can download the Cigati Outlook Email Recovery Software to repair and recover emails from the corrupt PST File without any data loss.
