PST File Corrupted! :(

I was working on Outlook while I accidentally face an application crash that has emptied my mailbox. Now when I am trying to recover emails using PST file, it is inaccessible and every time I try to open it, I get error messages. I am sure this has gone corrupted. Can anyone suggest me a right way to restore original PST file or if there is any copy that my system must be saving for it. Your help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
