Need help recovering .pst files

#1 Post by stryker412 »

I really need some help trying to recover pst files from a clicking drive. I've tried EaseUS and a few other programs with no luck. On most programs I can retrieve the files but I cannot import them into Outlook or in the case of Word docs, Word cannot open them.

So here I am trying Testdisk as a last resort. Is there anyway to recover these pst files? They are extremely important.

Hello Stryker,

with Photorec you can recover files.

After Selection of the Drive you should go in the [File Opt].

Then you should deselect all filetypes with "s" and select only "pst".
Then you make a scan.
