Outlook 2007 : Scanpst.exe Errors
When using scanpst.exe to check a Personal Folder (.pst file) you may be presented with the following error: “Internal errors were found in this file. They must be repaired for this file to work correctly.“
This is actually a red-herring in some cases. Creating all of the standard Microsoft Outlook folders resolve the inconsistency errors requiring a repair with scanpst.exe.
These folders include:
- Deleted Items
- Sent Items
That-said, creating the folders is unnecessary as you needn’t be worried about the reported ‘errors.’
