Go to the Mail icon in the Control Panel, note the existing location of your actual ost file used for Outlook.

Move the existing ost (so you can restore it later). Re-name the ost file you need to convert to pst so it the same and then substitue the files.  When you open Outlook, you will get the data from the ost you want to convert.  Once in Outlook, go the File > Outlook Data File and create a pst in the usual way.

Once completed and you have created the pst from the ost, you can delete (make sure you have a backup) and put your original ost back in the correct folder.

if the email users are still on Exchange, you can :

Open Outlook 2010

Wait that the mail is synchronized

Next export ALL in pst file

I do not think if a free tool is there to help you out for this. However try Kernel for OST to PST. http://www.nucleustechnologies.com/exchange-ost-recovery.html

If you can connect to Exchange account, then you can:

1. Synchornize your local OST with your Exchange account,

2. Create a new PST file.

3. Copy all the contents in your OST file to PST file, which makes the conversion free.

If you cannot access your Exchange account, then you can use

Advanced Exchange Recovery

at

to make the conversion. But that is not free.
