Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Restore
corrupted .ost and .pst file manually…

-Choose
File-> Open-> Outlook Data File…

-Browse to the
location where you’ve restored the pst file. For instance: D:\My Documents\My
Outlook\Temp

You’ll now see
an additional set of folders added to your folder list which you can expand.
Expand the list and select the Inbox folder

In this folder
select the messages you want to restore to the original Inbox folder

-Drag & drop
them to the default Inbox folder

-Do the same for
the Contacts folder. You might want to set your view to a list view so you can
easily select and move the items.

Outlook 2007 and
previous

-View->
Current View-> Phone List

Outlook 2010 and
Outlook 2013

-tab Home->
group Current View-> List

Now that the
importing is complete, right click the pst-file in Outlook added in step 2 and
choose Disconnect.

Restart Outlook
and remove the export.pst file from the Temp directory if desired.
