Hi,
I've seen a few previous postings on this question but what I'm finding is software that costs $600.

Our hosted exchange provider can recover the deleted exchange account for a fee of $75.

but if there is a tool that we can use to convert the OST to a PST file as we still have this, this would be much better.
Thanks

An alternative, if you still have an Outlook Account with the OST still active, is to disconnect the computer from the network, open up Outlook and that should open the .OST happily, then simply export the contents to a .PST file.

I will have to agree with alanhardisty - the easiest way is to disconnect from network and open file!

I personally recommend to create a new PST and copy your emails retaining folder structure using this free tool:

Gave this one the award as in the end no easy cheap solution was presented, so I just paid to have mailbox recovered.
