QuickJump LogoToday we released QuickJump version 1.4.0.70.

  • QuickJump now supports both Microsoft .NET 4 and 3.5. You only need one of those installed on your computer. So if you have a brand new Windows 8 installation, you do not need to install .NET 3.5, you can simply use .NET 4, which is bundled with Windows 8.
  • New hotkeys – Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, …., Ctrl+9 – switches to the 1st, 2nd, …, 9th folder listed. We still recommend that you use type-ahead to filter the folder list to a small number (up to 5) before using one of these hotkeys.

Where is scanpst.exe and how to find it

PST and OST corruption – the root of most Outlook issues

A corrupted PST or OST file is one of the most common causes of problems with Outlook. If an Outlook mail file is corrupted, Outlook does not necessarily tell you about it. However, Outlook will start failing in random and unpredictable ways. From something relatively minor, like messages not turning read after you open them, to crashes, freezes and inability to launch Outlook. A large portion of our support requests have nothing to do with TechHit products, but are resolved by running scanpst to fix errors in the PST / OST file.

How to find scanpst on your computer

Outlook Open File LocationIf you have Microsoft Office installed, you have scanpst.exe installed as well. It is located in the same folder as Outlook. Here is an easy way to find it:

 

  1. Open the Task Manager.
  2. Find Outlook on the Processes tab.
  3. Right-click on Outlook and select “Open File Location”. The screenshot on the right shows Windows 8. In Windows 7, “Open File Location” is the first command on the right-click menu.
  4. You will see Windows Explorer open the folder in which Outlook is installed. Scanpst is located in the same folder.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT: you have to run scanpst repeatedly on every PST/OST file, until it tells you that there are no more errors in the file. You will find additional instructions in the first part of this article.
