How to save ost file?

Post by AlbertoCano »

A user exceeded mail limit and in recreating the user mailbox she lost a months work of e-mail. She has an OST and I would like to convert it to a PST to salvage what I can.

Cant you just open the OST in another Outlook and back it up to a PST?

Also, what limit? Employer made limit? I never knew Outlook had any limits.
Remember, I am opinionated and nothing I say or do reflects on anyone or anything else but me :finga:

Hi,
Can you open OST file from outlook?
Outlook 2007:
Click Tools -> Account Settings -> Double click Email account -> More settings -> Advanced tab -> select Use Cached Exchange Mode check box -> Click Offline Folder File Settings... and Click Browse -> Browse to .OST file -> restart Outlook.
After restart outlook, Click File -> Import and Export -> Export to a file -> Personal Folder File (.pst).
Method 2: Create a new Personal Folder File (.pst), drag the folder to .pst that you want to move.
Note: Dragging default folders, such as Inbox, Calendar, and Contacts, brings up a message that you can’t move default folders. The contents will be copied instead, with the folder named Inbox (1), Calendar (1), etc.
Or If you don't have this capability, then use Recovery Toolbox for Outlook

To save the OST file, you can use the manual method. But if you want to convert the OST file to PST, try the OST file converter. There are various tools available that make the conversion process easy. I used the SysCurve OST Converter. It helped me to fix the corrupt OST file, and after that, I changed to PST. You can try this tool https://www.syscurve.com/ost-to-pst-converter.html

The process of archiving the data involves moving the OST mailbox folders to PST file format.

And the other way is to export the OST data to PST file format. The steps to export the OST file are:

Open Microsoft Outlook
Click File menu and select ‘Open & Export’ and click on Import/Export from the available options
From the Import and Export wizard, click Export to a file and select the file format option – PST from the suggested storage options
