OST to PST


J

Jerry M. Gartner

Greetings:

I need to open an OST file to get the data from it. I see a program
that costs $500.00 that will take an OST and save it as a PST but I can't
believe that there is no Microsoft solution for this.. I exported the data
from an Exchange account but lost a bunch of emails in the process - I'm not
sure how, as the export completed successfully. At any length, I need to
see if the emails are in the OST. The file size would indicate as such so
I'd like to give it a try. Any suggestions are appriciated

What version of Outlook are you using and do you still have the connection
to the Exchange server? If so place Outlook in off-line mode and restart
Outlook. It should now look at the ost-file and you can export the mails to
a pst.

It's Outlook 2003 as is the Exchange Server. I can re-establish the account
to the Exchange server. How does it know which OST file to look at?

Safe your ost-file you wish to restore. Configure the account for the
Exchange server and enable Cached Mode and have it synch with the server.
Then place Outlook in off-line mode and close Outlook. Replace the ost-file
and start Outlook.
