How to Check Consistency (Corrupted) In Outlook Pst and Ost file

1 solution

There is no API call as far as I can find to force a consistency check.

There is, however, an external tool that is installed with Outlook that you can shell out to that does this. I think it's under C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\ somewhere, called ScanOst.exe.
