Database Utility is undoubtedly a great tool that solves most common issues that occur in Entourage email application. In case of corruption, It can repair and rebuild the Entourage database efficiently but there are some limitations of this tool as it is unable to repair the severely damaged database. In case of seriously damaged, we require a third party Entourage recovery software like Stellar Phoenix Entourage recovery software.
