  • Microsoft doesn't provide any utility to convert .ost files to PST format, but there are many third-party software which convert an .ost file into PST format. Though, there are some manual solutions for such conversion, but sometimes they may not work. However, they should be considered before using any third-party converter. 

    1. By using archive feature or AutoArchive, one can move all your data (except contacts) into a new .pst file. 
    2. By using export feature, one can easily and quickly move all the data from an .ost file to a new .pst file.
    3. By moving the items into a PST: Create a new .pst file and drag all the folders of .ost file into the .pst file. The default folders like: Inbox, Calendars, etc. can't be moved, they can be copied from .ost to .pst.

    These are some manual ways to have .ost files data in PST format. If these are not helpful, I would like to recommend SysInfoTools OST File Recovery software. The software recovers data from corrupt .ost files and converts the file into PST and other formats like: MSG, DBX, EML, MBOX and archive format.

    Using third party tool you can easily migrate your ost file to pst file. I would like to suggest you to use Kernel for OST to PST Conversion Tool for your such requirement. It is a better option which is so effective and result oriented. Refer to http://www.osttopst.diskdatarecovery.net to know more about the application and download the demo tool.

  • Hi,

    As you asked for a utility tool, there are number of utility tools available in the market. But none of the tools provide 100% conversion of OST file data into PST format.

    I tried bundle of utilities but none of them was able to satisfy my needs. I was having around 100 orphan OST files that I wanted to convert to PST. As I was searching for some utility over the internet, then I found one of the software with the name Microsoft Exchange OST Converter. I just tried this software and I was surprised to see its performance. Not only my all the email messages, but all the contacts, calendar items, tasks, notes and journals, every data was recovered by this tool in a hassle - free manner. The conversion of OST to PST took just a faction of second and all the data was retrieved and saved properly in PST file format.

    You can get this tool by going to the following link: -
