My Outlook .ost/.pst file has been corrupted recently and I really need to recover it, if I can.  Looking for suggestions on recovery software/procedures.   Thanks to all!

How recently and do you take backups?

 

If you take backups it's probably best to recover the uncorrupted version from a backup and then allow your messages since that time to download again (presuming IMAP access).

I had a fairly recent back up, but that seems to have been corrupted, as well.  It really is quite frustrating!  Outlook tells me that the file from which I'm trying to restore is not an Outlook file.

 C:\User\User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\m.hoyer@wippell.com.bak.pst is not an Outlook data file (.pst).
