Microsoft Outlook 2007 is the most comprehensive messaging and organizing tool that provides several unique features and new improvements to enhance its capablility, usability and functionality. Some noteworthy features offered in Outlook 2007 are as follows:

  • To-Do Bar: This feature provides a consolidated view of your daily priorities like tasks, upcoming appointments and calendar information. It shows all the tasks and 3 upcoming events on the right side of the screen. It also shows list of all items from the all folders, which have been flagged for follow-up and treats all flagged items like tasks.
  • Electronic Business Card: Electronic business cards are the electronic versions of classic business cards, which make sharing of contact information simple. These cards can be easily inserted in your emails and are also easily identified by the recipients.
  • Instant search: This feature is helpful for searching information such as emails, meetings, contacts, tasks, appointments from all the folders of Outlook 2007.

Outlook stores all its data in PST file. Then default storage location of Outlook 2007 PST file in different versions of Windows Operating system is as follows:

  • Windows XP: PST file is situated at C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
  • Windows Vista: PST file is situated at C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
  • Windows 7: PST file is situated at C:\Users\user\My Documents\Outlook Files

Common causes for PST file corruptions are:

  • PST file corruption due to Outlook upgradation: If you have been using older version of Outlook like Outlook 2002 or Outlook 2003 and want to upgrade to new version of Outlook i.e. Outlook 2007 then all the major settings along with messages and contacts will be moved to Outlook 2007. While upgrading if sudden power failure occurs then PST file gets damaged resulting in loss of emails. Single Operating system cannot maintain two different versions of Outlook at a time. Therefore, when you install Outlook 2007, it will uninstall older version of Outlook. 
  • PST file corruption due to oversize: Different versions of Outlook have different PST file size limit. Outlook 2007 has PST file size limit of 20GB. If PST file exceeds 20GB PST file size limit then it might get corrupted. This problem generally occurs, when you do not delete unwanted emails from Outlook 2007.
  • Improper system shutdown: If you turned off your computer without exiting Outlook 2007 then PST file may get corrupted resulting in loss of emails. Improperly terminating Outlook 2007 may also corrupt the PST file that leads to loss of emails. But, if you want to fix Outlook 2007 PST file, then repair Outlook software is the ultimate solution.
  • PST file header corruption: The most common reason for PST file header corruption is virus attack. All the information regarding PST file is stored in PST file header. When this PST file header gets infected by viruses, then those viruses do not allow you to open the PST file resulting in loss of emails.
