When an OST file is corrupted, Outlook (2007) complains:
""" Errors have been detected in the file blah.ost. Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool(Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and repair the file """
Living right next to scanpst.exe is scanost.exe which, so far as I can tell:
- Only works with OST Files
- Lets you browse your mailbox hierarchy, rather than make you locate outlook0.ost and scan the whole file.
My question is: Is there a functional difference between doing a verify and repair of an OST file in ScanPST vs a "scan all folders" ScanOST?
Or, more concise: Is there ever a reason to use both?
