I have 38 Gb ost file and when I was exporting ost file to pst in Outlook 2016, but ost file did not work to transfer to pst.
Can anyone advise me “how to convert ost to pst”?Dec 20, 2016 at 2:15 pm #191469
IIRC there is still a 20Gb limit on PST files, so maybe exporting in smaller chunks may solve your problem

Actually I have 3 different my .ost files: 12, 16, 10 Gb size of my .ost file. All total are 38 GB.Dec 22, 2016 at 9:44 am #191473
Can you give us a few more clues – you started with “a 38Gb OST file” now you have 3 – presumably in three profiles?
What errors do you get?
What is in the event logs?
Have you tried exporting from the mailbox(es) using PowerShell?

You can try this manual solution-
1- Launch the MS Outlook application
2- Go to Tools Menu > Account settings > Email account > More settings
3- Now click on the Advanced tab and then select “Use cached Exchange Mode” checkbox
4- Click Offline Folder File Settings and then locate the OST file by clicking on Browse button
Start Outlook again.
Now, click File -> Import and Export -> Export to a file -> Personal Folder File (PST)
