You may download and run the Microsoft Outlook recovery tool from websites that are trusted. There are so  many tools to choose from for example the Disklnternal Mail Recovery, Outlook repair [by email recovery.com], FILE RECOVERY 3.2, Kernel Data Recovery Software and many more.

Hi,

You haven't mentioned what type of crash is it. As per your information if it is booting issue, then obviously you have many options but if the hard drive is really crashed down then you don't have many options. I think you are stuck in the first case.

* If there are two partitions on your drive install a fresh copy of Operating system on that drive. Now you have an option to copy your data on any external sources.

* If there is any small hard drive available, you can do all this on that hard drive.

* You can also try booting manger software, that will take you to the system command prompt, but you need to know Dos to do that all. Finding the path of outlook is very easy.

There is no way you can retrieve your Office Outlook data if you are referring to the Office Outlook mbox. The only way you can retrieve Outlook’s mailbox is if your computer is able to boot. Microsoft Windows XP and higher is normally installed on a partition formatted with the NTFS file system and when your computer is unable to boot, that file system is not accessible.

That’s the drawback when using NTFS as file system. Unlike when your system drive is formatted with the FAT32 file system, even if Microsoft Windows is unable to boot, you can still access the contents of the drive by simply booting the computer in DOS using a DOS bootable disk. But with an NTFS file system, this is not possible.

But there is still a way to retrieve the mailbox file from Office Outlook by removing the hard drive from your CPU and connecting it to a different computer with a perfectly working operating system that has its own Office Outlook. You need to change the jumper settings on the hard drive before connecting it to another computer so it will be successfully detected.

Once your hard drive is now accessible on the computer, you need to locate the PST file of Office Outlook. The following are the possible locations of the PST file:

  • * drive:UsersAppDataLocalMicrosoftOutlook
  • * drive:UsersRoamingLocalMicrosoftOutlook
  • * drive:UsersDocumentsOutlook Files
  • * drive:UsersMy DocumentsOutlook Files
  • * drive:Documents and SettingsLocal SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook

Once you locate the PST file, you need to import it on the computer’s own Office Outlook to retrieve your emails. If you don’t know how to import a PST file, go to Import from an Outlook PST File.
