Question, i archived the accounts on my network, before replacing the DC, however it saved the bulk of the data as *.OST files and not *.PST files. Are there any freeware products out there that i can use to transfer the OST to a PST? If not freeware, then please advise the best affordable solution for this issue.

You can use Advanced Exchange Recovery at http://www.datanumen.com/aexr/ . It is not a freeware but it works for me.

All of your assistance was useful but in the end i managed to find a SBS 2008 backup of exchange and do a restore from it to recover the mail boxes. Alot of the programs linked claim to do this but from my research u would need to spend upwards of $250 to do it, thus contacting MS was cheaper so we went with this option. thanks for you time...
