  • Converting OST to PST File

    I have a users old OST file that I need to convert to a PST file so I can search for missing emails. Or any other way that would enable me to perform this task. Uses Outlook 2007.

    Based on a blog entry from 2010, you'll have t rely on 3rd-party tools to do what you're asking. An OST file is a local caching from the Exchange server to the local client Outlook machine, so can't be 'opened' elsewhere, in part due to security concerns. If you have a look at the lower half of this page, found thru :

    you'll find some tools listed which can do what you want. OST2PST is shown as free, but also points out that it won't work with OST files newer than 2002. Have a read of the others and see if one of those can help you. Never tried to do what you're trying, so can't advise further.
