Hello Jhowlett,

There is noting free if you are using Outlook 2003 or higher.  Here is a reasonable priced method - OST to PST Converter

Jhowlett, if you use ost2pst.exe, this is the program jazzIIIlove proposed.  But it only works on Outlook versions 2002 and before.  Do you have OST file that old?

jazzllove, ost2ost.exe program is not for Outlook 2003 nor 2007.  But if Asker had an old OST file, it will work.
