The folder structure of new PST files remains similar to the original data structure of the damaged files. Messages and other objects are recovered with attachments, if they have any. The program is a simple, clear and easy to use wizard. Settings in the wizard is easy and really consists of naming the appropriate files.

Recovered messages can be stored as EML files that can be read by mail clients other than Outlook too. Contacts data can go into a VCF file and the sticky notes can be saved into text files.

Cons: In one session the tool recovers just one PST file. To recover more the application will have to be run more number of times. This could be a limitation at times, a batch recovery function would be a great help.
Overall a nice application, a definite 3 starrer.
