Outlook: scanpst.exe speeds up pst files?

Does running scanpst.exe speed up Outlook?
 
I had some problems with a pst file over the last few days. Actually I experimented with a VMWare raw disk and managed to get my email partition corrupted... It left me with a pst file that Outlook refuses to read. It complained that the pst file was corrupted and Outlook suggested I run the inbox repair tool: scanpst.exe
 
Scanpst.exe is located on the C drive in the shared programs folder. After running the scanpst utility I am finding that looking through my pst file is much faster! Usually searches took ages and now it whizzes through.  
 
Does anyone else have the same experience?

Hi,  
 
Sounds like scanpst doesn't work for your corrupt pst file. You can try a tool called Advanced Outlook Repair to repair your PST file. It is a powerful tool to recover messages, folders and other objects from corrupt or damaged Microsoft Outlook PST files.  
 
Detailed information about Advanced Outlook Repair can be found at http://www.datanumen.com/aor/
 
And you can also download a free demo version at http://www.datanumen.com/aor/aor.exe  
 
Hope this helps.
 
Alan
