“I have installed my Windows 7 computer with Microsoft Outlook application and I often work in offline mode. Recently, I upgraded Outlook from 2007 to 2010 version. After update, Outlook started giving trouble, the window used to freeze or hang frequently and thus OST file turned corrupt. Since, Outlook 2010 lacks integrity check tool i.e. ScanOST; I tried using ScanPST, but it was unable to fetch expected result. I even tried if Windows 7 could help to solve the problem, but was out of luck. Now, how can I repair Outlook 2010 OST on Windows 7? Kindly share your valuable comments.”
