Convert OST to PST files - free or cheap (outlook 2007)

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

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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!

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