People who deal with the Outlook profile are probably aware that Outlook saves information from emails, contacts, and other categories to a PST file. When Exchange goes offline, Outlook provides an OST format to save information in addition to the PST file. When a user uses Outlook in offline mode or Outlook Cached Exchange Mode, an OST file recovery, also known as an Offline Storage Table recovery, is created. This ability to work offline allows users to make the most of their time even when they are not connected to Exchange. Once the connection is restored, the OST file can be synchronized with the Exchange server.
If any problems emerge during the OST to Exchange synchronization procedure, the OST file is likely corrupted. “Unable to extend the folder, the group of folders could not be opened,” for example, is one of the problem messages. There may have been errors in the file xxxx.ost. To resolve the corruption issues, close all mail-enabled applications and then utilize the Inbox Repair Tool” that appears. Following the instructions may or may not result in the recovery of an OST file; therefore, the best way to recover an OST file from corruption is to convert it to PST using the highly appreciated SysTools® OST Recovery program.
Because of the security issues that come in between Exchange mailbox, OST, and MAPI profile altogether, the software is highly appreciated. For example, users cannot convert OST files directly to PST files because of the security issues between the Exchange mailbox, OST, and MAPI profile. The user cannot rename an OST file to a PST file or open it with another MAPI profile (for that user has to be logged in to the original MAPI profile). The SysTools® OST Recovery program comes in handy for those who are having problems accessing their OST files since it can recover and convert OST files to PST files even if MS Exchange is not installed.
