    Outlook 2010 has lots of new features, which improves usability. Outlook 2010 provides threaded email conversations, which allows users to follow ongoing conversation if they need. Outlook 2010 has better search tools and text-editing tools compared to previous versions of Outlook. Using Outlook 2010, you can connect social media services thereby you can track the online activities of people you know

    When you create a new account in Outlook 2010, it automatically creates a PST file to store emails. Along with emails, this PST file also stores contacts, addresses, calendar appointments, meetings notes and all other Outlook data. Outlook 2010 has a PST file size limit of 50GB and due to this there are less chances of PST file corruption due to oversized PST files. Storage location of PST file depends upon different Operating systems.

    • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
    • Windows Vista & Windows 7:  C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

    Common scenarios, which lead to deletion or loss of emails, are explained below,

    • Accidental deletion of emails: Generally, when you delete emails they are moved to "Deleted Items" folder. If you delete emails from "Deleted Items" folder then they get permanently deleted from Outlook 2010. If you have enabled "Empty Deleted Item folder when exiting Outlook" option then the emails which are moved to "Deleted Items" folder get deleted permanently when you close the Outlook. Later, if you need those emails then you cannot restore deleted emails from "Deleted Item" folder resulting in loss of emails. However you can retrieve deleted emails by performing deleted email restoration on outlook 2010 using a good email recovery software
    • PST files header corruption: Generally, PST file has 2 different parts i.e. file header and data part. The file header contains information about the file like file size, file signature, etc. If this header gets corrupted then Outlook does not recognize the PST file thereby it will not allow you to access emails from it resulting in loss of emails. PST file header corruption may occur due to virus attack, improper system shutdown, abruptly closing Outlook etc.
    • Errors during compacting PST files: If you want to save disk space then you need to compact PST file. While compacting if some error occurs then PST file may get corrupted, which may in turn results in loss of emails along with other important components of PST file.
    • PST file corruption due to antivirus scanning: Sometimes, antivirus which scans your incoming and outgoing emails may interrupt the sending and receiving process resulting in loss of emails.
