The libpff package contains a library and applications to read the Personal Folder File (PAB, PST, OST) format.


Libpff was created by Joachim Metz in 2008, while working for Hoffmann Investigations.

Libpff is a rewrite of earlier work on the PST file format by the libpst project. Libpff was updated to be a shared library and support the OST and PAB files.

Currently libpff partially supports the data in PAB files.


The libpff package contains the following tools:

  • pffexport, which exports the items stored in PAB, PST and OST (PFF) files
  • pffinfo, which shows information about PFF files.

pffrecover, has been replaced by pffexport -m recovered
