If your Outlook PST file get corrupted then you have lost your all email from outlook. So you can try to repair it by the help of free utility SCAN.PST. if it does not help to repair your PST file then you should try any third party tool such as Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST repair. You can try free demo version and preview all recover email item.

The Microsoft Outlook offers free recovery PST tool to perform successful PST recovery. The too is called scanpst.exe. This tool comes free of cost with MS Outlook, which is installed at the time of Outlook installation. Usually, this scanpst.exe is not visible in the start menu but present at other hidden location. You can use it in following ways:

Step1: Go to start menu and click on Run.
Step2: Type C:Program FilesCommon FilesSystemMapiLocaleIDscanpst.exe in Open box and then click OK.
Step3: You can also search the software through search option in the start menu by typing scanpst.exe in the search box.
Step4: Type the name and path of the file to be recovered in the scan box and click on OK button.
Step5: After the completion of scanning, choose the backup of scanning file before repairing option and then click on Repair button.

You can try Scanpst.exe command to check the inconsistency of PST file in header section and if any minor corruption occurs then this command automatically rectifies it. But if the corruption level is higher and users didn't get any solution with it then they can try a third party tool which is available here:- www.pcrecoveryutility.com/outlook-pst-recovery.html
