when you change path of outlook, some files are containing inbox or other mails get damage, as value in registry and some temp files cause this to happen.
This happens when Outlook is not closed properly. Sometimes, an add-in will keep Outlook open in the background and you won't know it. Then, when you reboot or shut off your computer and go back into Outlook, it will tell you it is corrupt.
I found that connecting to a .pst file via wireless network caused frequent corruptions.
Changing to a wired (T-LAN 100) connection solved the problem for me.
PST file can get corrupted for following reasons:
Your computer suddenly loses power
Your computer gets shut down improperly
Bug in outlook causes it to crash
An outlook upgrade hangs up
An operating system patch fails to install correctly
A bug in some other application corrupts the pst file
Outlook was backed up to faulty backup media
I'm a IT Tech for a large computer company and the reason why most get damaged/corrupt are due to size. Most think that because a .pst file is local that the only limit is that of the hard drive. This is not true, you have a limited size that your .pst file can get to be. It's best not to push the limit or you will eventually have a headache trying to resolve it. I've noticed that a lot of people forget their Deleted Items folder, remember this counts against your .pst file so clean it out on a regular basis. Create another .pst file, or an archive.pst. Where as size is the number one corruption, other things such as add-ons and/or viruses can cause .pst files to become corrupted. As long as you use common sense then issues like this can easily be avoided.
Mostly, corruption of files are caused by viruses. If you believe your Pc has no virus then you have to reformat your Windows OS. OS is only effective around 6 months minimum.
