  • Hi,

    Office provides a Scanpst.exe tool to repair the .pst and .ost files, but unfortunately you can't access Outlook now.

    In this case, you need to use some 3rd-party tools to repair the .ost file first.

    I'm not sure if there is any other tool to open .ost files, you may search such tools on the Internet.
