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?

Thanks

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 http://www.convert-osttopst.com you can try it's demo version for free. That will preview all the recoverable components for free.
