Rebuilding your ‘Profile’ or ‘Identity’ in Mac Outlook may fix many of your issues with the software and the data stored in it. Mac Outlook latest version may even automatically start the ‘Database Utility’ with an option to rebuild the database.
This usually gets rid of the common problems that may be bothering the software and your data. However, there are times where it makes no difference, such as when the database is damaged severely by a virus attack or other such events.
You should also see if the hard disk the database is stored at isn’t faulty itself. Many times, the disk is fragmented and is required defragmentation. Trying to fix your Outlook database won’t’ work.
But if you have done all that and the data is still inaccessible and damaged? Then you need a dedicated repair utility. If you cannot rebuild Mac Outlook, it means it requires direct repairing through other means.
There are third-party utilities to help you do that. But the one that is often hailed as best is “Recover Outlook Mac Database.” Just like its name, its function is quite clear-cut: it recovers your emails and everything else from the Outlook Mac Database and it does so in the far quicker and extensive manner than any other utility.
This is due to the sophisticated algorithms at its core. They work with the database in depth and with precision, leaving no chance of incomplete recovery. The utility also works even the most hardened corruption cases.
Apart from that, there are three other major factors that play a role in its popularity:
- Freedom to select what database you want to recover. It lets you restore the emails from the default identity, other identities, or even from the databases in backup locations (such as in an external drive). The default identity can be automatically picked up by the app, further reducing the load on the users and simplifying the process. You can even select the OLM files option to recover the data from files instead of the ‘Profile’ or ‘Identities.’
- Simple user-interface makes the process pleasant and quick. Otherwise, data recovery is one of the most confusing and daunting tasks. The UI is designed for maximum efficiency and ease of use, without warranting any prior skills or technical expertise. In short: you don’t need to know anything before recovering Outlook Mac and you will still get professional level results.
- Thirdly, it acts more than a simple data recovery tool. You can also use it is as an email migration app. After selecting the ‘Identity’ folder (or OLM) and recovering it, simply choose the output format of your choice, depending on where you want to export the data. Like, if you need to export the Mac Outlook emails to Windows Outlook, you can select ‘PST’ format. Other options include: ‘Mail’ (default email app in Mac OS X), RGE files, Thunderbird, MBOX files, EML files, and Postbox.
Please download the Trial version. You can recover up to ten items per folder before activation.
