Is your Outlook Mac behaving weirdly? Or can you not access some of your emails or folders correctly? There could be damage in the database or corruption of some sort. It is not an uncommon thing to find the files corrupted due to some events like virus attack, hard drive failures, network failures, abrupt shutdown of systems, and so on.
In some cases, it can be very tough to come out of this situation. There are a few manual methods to recover or rebuild the database that can fix the errors or damage, but it never complete.
If you are suffering from the same problem, it might be wise to rely on some professional third-party recovery tools. And there is no other better tool than the modestly titled “Recover Outlook Mac Database,” from Gladwev Software, which does exactly what the title implies. It brings some especial data-recovery algorithms and friendly interface that will make an otherwise frustrating process very quick and efficient.
“Recover Outlook Mac Database” is available in a trial mode that you can download below. Get it and check it out how it works and what all the features are.
If you are not willing to do that at this moment, you can read some of its features explained below.
Simplicity is a difficult aspect to bring to sophisticated software, especially in data recovery domain. This utility has a surprisingly intuitive UI that works for everyone, regardless of the experience in such processes. You might not know anything beforehand, but once you start it up, you will understand how it works.
Second very appreciated feature it has to offer is the direct recovery from “Main Identity” or “Main Profile.” Many Outlook recovery tools require OLM files. Which means you need to archive the data into OLM first using the ‘export’ feature and then recover them. Here, that is not a necessity. Simply choose either the primary database or any backup database, and the rest is the job for the tool.
Once the data is recovered, you have the option to choose the format in which you want to save the recovered emails and other items. One of that option is the Mac Outlook database itself, which should be obvious. But there’s more than that. You can choose to save it in Outlook PST for Mac Outlook as well as PC Outlook, MBOX file, EML file, Apple Mail, or Thunderbird. Thus, the tool is a recovery and email migration tool combined into one.
Complete recovery is uncommon, but here, you can let go of any concern regarding some elements of your data left behind. The tool works upon the sophisticated algorithms that recover everything including attachments, images, headers, metadata, and so on. It also keeps the folders in their correct hierarchy, which is a very big issue with the other tools because they can mess up their original arrangement.
Lastly, the tool’s native support for Unicode text is a big relief. Not only does it recover text from emails that are in other languages and use special characters, but it can also recover such content from the headers. It is very tricky to restore content that is in other languages such as Chinese or use some characters not included in ASCII standard. The full and native Unicode support makes it a universally appreciated recovery app.
Download the demo from here. It will recover ten emails (and everything else) from each folder and gives you access to try out the other options/functionality there is. It is a perfect way to get comfortable with it before activating using any one of the licenses that fit you.
