Troubleshooting steps to fix ‘scanpst.exe fails with Fatal Error 80040818’

Outlook PST powers the smooth functioning of Outlook by acting as a safe-house for all emails, contacts, calendar entries, notes, etc. associated with user mailboxes. However, with time and continued usage, data keeps piling up within PST files pushing them towards size limit breach and eventual corruption. The ScanPST.exe utility offered by Microsoft comes handy to detect and fix errors and corruption within PST files. While it works in most situations, sometimes it can fail due to several reasons and throw cryptic errors like the ‘Fatal Error 80040818’ leaving users confused and clueless as to what should be done next.



Read on to find out everything there is to know about this error and how you can fix it without much trouble.



Causes that trigger ‘Fatal Error 80040818’



Outlook supports PST files of two formats – ANSI and Unicode. Outlook versions 2002 and earlier supported ANSI format PST files which were bound by a 2GB size limit. This limit was extended to 20GB for Unicode format PST files supported by Outlook versions 2003 and beyond. The amount of data that your Outlook PST can handle therefore depends on the format in which it is encoded. Whenever the size of the PST file approaches its limit, it starts facing the threat of corruption.



Other causes of PST file corruption include:



  • Accessing ANSI format PST file with Outlook 2003 or later versions
  • Over-stuffing PST files with data without cleaning or archiving them once a while
  • Abrupt system termination or Frequent Power surges
  • Virus infection to the files
  • Bad sectors on the hard drive where the PST is saved

If your Outlook PST file has been corrupted owing to any of the above mentioned reasons, you are bound to face problems. Resolving them at the earliest is the only way to get back to work.



Solutions to ‘ScanPST.exe fails with fatal error 80040818’



The Inbox Repair utility ScanPST.exe offered by Microsoft is the first method used by most Outlook users to detect and fix corruptions and other errors within PST files. However, in cases of severe PST corruption, this utility fails to perform its task and terminates throwing errors like ScanPST.exe fails with fatal error 80040818. In such cases, you can try out one of the below mentioned techniques to fix the issue:

  • Reinstall MS Outlook – this might fix any anomalies in PST file behavior
  • Use CHKDSK utility available in Windows OS– this will help repair disk permissions and other system errors
  • Split and Compress PST files – this will help in reducing PST file size which is the original cause of PST file corruption
  • Try moving the corrupted file to a system installed with earlier version of Outlook or convert the Outlook PST file from ANSI format to Unicode format

Though these tricks should help you fix the problem, if the error still doesn’t budge, read the next section to find out our pick for the best PST repair software which will empower you to defeat this error for sure.

Extensive research across various popular technical forums point out that the best Outlook repair utility available online is Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair. Powered by advanced scanning and repair algorithms, this software can easily detect and repair corruption within PST files and rid it off all nasty errors.

SEP Application and Device Control (sysfer.dll) blocking McAfee Validation Trust Protection (mfevtps.exe) service from running

I need a solution

Hi,

I’m using SEPM 14 MP2 and having issue in running McAfee Client Proxy (MCP) version 2.3.2.251 installed on Windows 10 (version 1703).

MCP services run fine when SEP is installed without Application and Device Control feature. I have seen some threads which mention that Symantec injects sysfer.dll into processes for ADC.

I have added following McAfee files and folders exception but it still doesn’t help in starting McAfee Validation Trust Protection Service (mfevtps.exe).

However, if I add C:WindowsSystem32 (not including subfolder) under Application Control exception then the services run fine.

How can I troubleshoot or narrow it down further to the file which is getting called by mfevtps.exe service and getting blocked?

Exceptions in place (includes subfolders):

  1. C:Program FilesCommon FilesMcAfee
  2. c:program filesmcafee
  3. c:program files (x86)common filesmcafee
  4. c:windowssystem32mfevtps.exe

How to find a substring in datacap?

I am looking for an API to find a string within the filename in datacap. I used splitfilename to split the filepath and filename. I want to perform few actions based on the file name if it has a word “Test”.
How do I perform this?

Ex : abc#Test#.pdf

Any help is much appreciated.

Check if folder exists

my structure is as follows

MyRootFolder

└──subfolder1
└──subfolder2
.
.
.
└──subfolder n

I have a requirement where-in I need to check if a sub-folder exists within a root folder and if not create it. I can’t find a direct API to check for the sub-folder existence. Instead, I see an API like

folder.get_SubFolders();
which would give me a list of all the sub-folders and then iterate to check if sub-folder exists or not. The problem here is that I might end up having to iterate many folders which I don’t want to do. Is there a different way to achieve this? I’m using Filenet 5.2.1

Folder is: Symantec File Share

I need a solution

I’m trying to figure out how to determine from code (C#) that a folder has been setup as a Symantec File Share location.

Our objective is to try and control where applications create temporary files, we’d like to force them to be in a folder setup with PGP Encryption. Or at least recognize when the folder is not encrypted and force a secure delete in that case.

Thanks.

Generating thumbnails on an AIX system, CPE 5.2.1.2

Hello,
we have a customer who is running CPE 5.2.1.2 on AIX 64bit, they just added the thumbnail addon.

With each jpg file they get

FNRCC0201E: CONTENT_THUMBNAIL_GENERATION_FAILURE: Failed to generate thumbnail for file: [path to file :: mimetype extension], generation service return error code: [2817: SCCERR_OUTPUTSOLUTIONLOADFAILED]

I found a technote which tells you to install the X server for some UNIX servers (https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg22003188), but according to our documentation (https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSNW2F_5.2.1/com.ibm.p8.performance.doc/p8ppt320.htm) “In generating thumbnail images for raster (bitmapped) format files such as GIF, JPEG, TIFF, and BMP on UNIX system-based servers, Outside In Image Export does not require an X server”

In Wellspring I found the error message reported for pdf file, which matches the above statement, but not with jpg files.

I already opened a topic in a different forum, and also opened an RTC, but up to now I did not get any complete AIX-specific documentation of all steps one needs to follow.

So now I’m asking if anybody has real-life experience with thumbnails on an AIX system, and can can tell us what he did to get it running.

Thank you very much
Ulrich
