  • You don't need a tool to convert OST to PST if you know the manual method. One manual method to convert files is sending data via mail (if the data is less in OST file)

    If you want only specific mails & contacts in new pst file then you can forward these items to personal mail and then retrieve them from personal mail to MS outlook. You can also send other items by following steps

    • Right click on the files you want to send.
    • Select the files in save as Outlook format and compress them, Zip folder will be created.
    • Send this Zip folder to Personal ID.

  • Hi,victormoses37

    There are several methods to convert OST file to PST file.

    First, Microsoft does not provide an official tool to do the conversion. However, if you can access the contents of the OST file in your Outlook, then you can perform the conversion manually, as follows:

    1. Start Outlook. Make sure you can access all the contents in the OST file to be converted.
    2. Create a new PST file.
    3. Go to the OST file, select and copy all the contents to be converted with your mouse.
    4. Go back to the new PST file, then paste all the contents into the PST file

    That will do the ost 2 pst  conversion.



    You can also perform the conversion by exporting the contents of OST file to PST file by following the instructions at:





    Second, if you can access the Exchange server containing the account data for the OST file, then you can use Export-Mailbox command to export the data into a PST file, similar to convert your OST file into a PST file. Below is the article about doing that:





    Third, you can try  a free OST to PST converter via Outlook VBA . Below is the article about doing that:



    Hope this will help. Good Luck!
