Recovering Outlook 2013 Calendar Contents


These are some common factors that can corrupt or erase Outlook 2013 PST files:

  • Transferring or downloading Outlook PST files incorrectly can corrupt them with ease. If the PST files which are downloaded are broken or incomplete, they won’t be accessible by Outlook application
  • Problems such as power outages and disruptions while accessing MS Outlook files can damage them
  • If the Outlook contents are deleted long time ago from Outlook application, they are permanently erased and are removed from the PST

Brief Introduction:

Microsoft Office Outlook application stores all its contents from a unique account such as emails, contacts, calendar, tasks, RSS feeds, journals, notes and other info in a unique type of file called the PST (Personal Storage Table) file. PST is a file created by Microsoft Outlook for a particular user profile in order to save all data on the local computer. Each and every Outlook user has a unique PST file on a computer having large data limits for every account.

The MS Outlook PST files are accessible from inside a user account from MS Outlook application only. If the PST file gets harmed in any minute way, the Microsoft Outlook will not be able to access any data from that PST. These files can get damaged or corrupted in many ways and out of which, the most general causes is mentioned in the later section. However, if any partition on a Windows PC containing PST file gets infected with viruses and malwares, it is sure that those files will get corrupted, making your important data within it inaccessible. So always try to keep your system virus free by installing any good anti virus software.
