Office 2016 - OST to PST convertion

Semua Balasan

  • Hi Sachith H M,

    OST file is a synchronized copy of your mailbox information on your local computer which can not be converted to PST files directly.

    If you want to backup your account, we could export items from Outlook to PST files. Please refer to the details in this link.

    Hope this is helpful to you.

    Exporting of OST data to PST files is probably the most scalable method and serves as one of the preferred OST to PST converter options. To accomplish the export procedure follow the under mentioned process.
    1. Open Microsoft Outlook 2016, 2013, 2010 or previous version
    2. Navigate to ‘File’ menu and select ‘Import & Export’
    3. This will open ‘Import and Export Wizard’, select ‘Export to a File’
    4. Further, select ‘Outlook data file’(PST) format from the given storage options
    5. Make sure to select the checkbox associated to ‘Include subfolders’
    6. Click on Finish

  • I had the same concern but I didn't ask for the free tool because I know there is no any method to use ost file data in pst file format in free of cost, you have to pay for it. I got the solution from Microsoft Technet Forum Website named as Mailsdaddy ost to pst converter. It really works at the cheapest price. I am unable to insert Website of my forum otherwise I provide.
