    If your OST file is corrupt - the best solution is to delete (or rename) the OST file. Outlook will then automatically re-create the file.

    The caveat to the above is if the OST file is associated with an IMAP account configured in OL'2013/'2016 in which case you need to backup any data contained in any folders with "This Computer Only" in the name (i.e. contacts/calendar etc). Failure to do that will result in that data getting lost since these folders do not sync with the server.

  • Convert even inaccessible OST mailbox data to an Outlook PST file, with the help of third party software, OST to PST converter, with ease. The software is also capable to convert multiple user mailboxes from OST to PST simultaneously. In addition, users can also convert OSt files to EML, MSG, HTML, MBOX and DBX.
