Find Your Outlook PST File Locaton If you just have a single PST file created automatically by Outlook, there’s a standard location under your user profile directory.Open up an explorer window, and then paste in the following into the address bar: You should see your PST file in the list, usually called at least in the later versions of Outlook.Click on the Repair button, and after a while you’ll finally get the “Repair complete” message.If you are curious what was actually repaired during the process, you’ll find a text file in the same directory as your PST file with the same name as the PST file.If you’ve created a new personal folders file, it might be in a different location.If the file cannot be fixed you can still recover individual emails and export them.And if that wasn’t enough, it can even attempt to crack your forgotten password on a password-protected PST file.Most of the information in the file is pretty cryptic…

If you use Outlook and you’ve noticed it being excessively slow or just having errors, you should probably scan and repair your Personal Folders file for any problems. Repairing Your PST File To repair your PST file, you’ll have to open the utility that’s included by default with Outlook.
