    Hi, I need to recover an outlook OST file from some work I did last year. I no longer have that PC but I did make a copy of the outlook OST file. Anyone got some tips on this? I know it can be done, I have even done it a long time ago but since forgotten.

    Any tips / tools?

    You need to import the OST file from within Outlook and then you should be able to export it to other formats.

    Do you mean PST? there are many free programs that let you read pst files outside of outlook, like "PST Viewer"

    Hi,

    For easy recovery and repair of the corrupt OST you can also try in a utility tool named Lepide Exchange Recovery Manager which worked greatly for me. Besides this it also quickly restored my OST to PST so that I can access my mailbox without the Exchange access

    Thanks

    From where you want to recover the OST file? Do you want to recover an OST file from a storage media or you want to recover data from OST file? If you want to recover data from your OST file, then you can try SysInfoTools OST Recovery software. It will help you recover your data from OST file. If file is normal, then you can recover 100% data from it. And if it is corrupted, still you have fair chances to recover data from it by using this software. Download its free demo version first.Thank you.
