My OST file contains many important emails, tasks, notes and other attributes, which I don’t want to lose.”

While using OST file you might have presented with Cyclic Redundancy Check error that had stopped you from accessing information resided in OST file. The CRC error is a Windows error message that indicates that there is a problem reading data you are trying to access. The main cause for this issue could be a damaged OST file.

  • Now you will see a black window known as Windows DOS
  • Type "chkdsk /f" and press "Enter”. You will now find a message saying that the disk will be checked next time when you start the system
  • Just hit upon “Y” and then “Enter”

After following all these steps, restart your computer by closing the Windows DOS command. When you restart your computer Windows starts scanning the disk. Wait for the drive scan to reach 100%. When it completes scanning process, the CRC error will be fixed and you can access information from OST file without any difficulties.
