    Rebuild / Restore

    I have problems that seem to be caused both by registry and FAT silent corruption, due to a transient fault in my RAM.

    a) how does the rebuild tool in Outlook work - what are the tasks it undertakes?

    are there any other commercial / shareware / freeware restoration tools?

    Fingers crossed,

    No others that I'm aware of - double check at slipstick.com

    The ?mailbox rebuild? utility that shipped with the original version of Outlook 98. It has very little documentation and minimal help screen support. Sorry I can't be more specific - it's on the machine that is in quarantine while I figure out what to do . . .

    scanpst. it can correct problems with a bad pst file. no instructions needed really, just follow the screen prompts. many users report success by alternating scanpst with scandisk (to fix the hard drive) - repeating three times. from the sounds of your problems, that might be a wise idea.
