Exchange OST Recovery to Outlook Recommendation

I need to recover an orphaned OST file so data can be imported into Outlook.  I realize that this requires a 3rd party app.

I've tried RecoveryFix, but that didn't work and the support was horrible.

Any other recommendations out there from people that have successfully recovered OST files?

Is scanpst.exe compatible with Outlook 2010?  The only info i could find only referenced Outlook 2007.
Yes, Outlook 2010 also has a accompanying scanpst with it. See this article to find the Outlook 2010 version of scanpst:
To recover data from an orphaned OST file, you need to convert it to PST file. But Microsoft provides no tool to perform this conversion. There are third party tools available to convert orphaned OST file to PST file. One such tool is available at you can try it's demo version for free.
