Outlook ost file, how to fix?


The ost is corrupt. What I want to do is fix the OST file, convert it to a PST and then import it back in. 

Is there any program, which will fix or reindex an outlook OST file?

What to do?

Try OST Recovery software. It’s an advanced recovery solution for corrupt OST files that can recover the maximum possible data from them. It can fix any level of corruption, i.e. moderate or severe, from Outlook OST files, and repair them. Also, it works as an OST Converter tool, i.e. it can convert OST to PST and other popular formats.
