Hi,
A user of mine who has an ost file saved locally seems to have lost most of her inbox, all sent items are there and deleted items the ost file is around 1gb in size but she only has her inbox from the last 2 days is there a way of recovering these e-mails?

Can you verify that they are in the dumpster (recover deleted items).

she has items in the 'deleted items' but they seem to be her appointments and no e-mails which is strange.

Check from OWA as well. OST file is a local copy of the users mailbox.

In that case, you will have to restore the mailbox from last night's backup.

You can create a RSG and restore without disrupting your production and then merge the specific mailbox from RSG to the production.
