Where is SCAN.PST?

Scan.pst is the file used in Microsoft Office to help fix a myriad of errors on your PST files, but typical of Microsoft they don’t store it in a normal location, and with every version of Office it moves around – bloody crazy if you ask me :/

So to help you all, here is a list of KNOWN file locations πŸ™‚
