Now situation is different
Not so different. There are many articles like this:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/29049/Top-5-Free-OST-to-PST-Converter-Software.html
The title is "Top 5 FREE ..." while none of the mentioned tools is free. Titles like this are disturbing and misleading clickbait.

We worked with the author to make the title and content more accurate. If you see other articles that you feel are misleading please use the Report Article feature to bring your concern to the Moderators. We will also look into if we need better preventative policies on these.

No they're shareware, which is now called trial ware. They work and I've had to personally had to buy one of these converters years ago when backups were optional 😂
They just have limitations until you buy them.

When I used Shareware in the 80s, and it's a term I've really not seen since then, they encouraged you to use it, share it, distribute it at no cost, and it was Fully functional.

McAfee Anti-virus, and scan.exe was one of those products.

.

so should the title not be Trial Ware  - Top 5 FREE - Trial Ware
