Common reasons for PST file corruption:

Malware Attack: Virus can attack and infect the file content of your PST files. It causes behaviors like the renaming of file, creating another copy or destroys the data content of your file and renders them as shortcut files

Network Device Failure: Faults in a network device may often lead to PST file corruption. A PST file resides on the network server and can be accessed from a client computer through network links. If the network cables, cards, routers, hubs and any other devices constituting the network links have problems then the PST file may get corrupted.

Header Corruption: When you try to open a PST file, the operating system first reads the header of the file to know more about the information contained in it. If the header gets corrupted then it is not possible to decode this information thus leading to file damage.

Oversize: If the size of the PST file exceeds the fixed normal limit then the file gets corrupted.
