Hello @Chole_Decker,  I understand your problem, due to some unexpected error your Outlook PST files are corrupted. Inbox repair tool is also not helpful for you, In that situation your frustration is obvious, here i suggest another solution for corrupted Outlook PST files.

@Chole_Decker The best tool to repair a damaged or corrupted PST file is still Inbox Repair Tool, Many times it is required to run scanpst.exe more than once to completely remove the errors present in the PST file. I used to run it three times before all the errors are removed from it. I suggest you to do the same and check if it works for you. There are several third-party tools also available to do the task for you but Microsoft doesn't recommend using them you can use them at your own risk. If you really want to use a third-party tool then you have to take a backup of PST files first before using any such tool so that in case the software doesn't work then your files is safe. I got a link of comparison of few pst repair tools available with free demo versions available you can choose from the list according to your budget and requirement

With the demo version you can extract few emails from the PST file just to check if the software is working fine or not, to completely able to retrieve all mail items you need to purchase the software.
