Office 365 ScanPST to fix corrupted Outlook files

In Office 365, which uses the Click-to-Run technology, Office program files are now in a new location.



When you experience issues with Outlook, often you would use the ScanPST.exe tool to repair PST and OST files with Outlook.

This tool can now be found in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15\ScanPST.exe

Microsoft has published a Knowledge Base article list the locations of the ScanPST utility depending on your installation of Office 365. Whether you're using 32 or 64 bit versions.

This should apply for both 32-bit and 64-bit installations of Office 365.

  1. Hi its now September 2016 (this post, which looked very useful, went up almost 18 months ago) and the path for scanpst.exe no longer works.
    Program files\microsoft office 15 gets you to a folder called ClientX64 which contains two applications - integratedoffice and officeclicktorun

    Any chance it is still lurking and that you have ferreted it out??
