Google "convert ost to pst free" and take your pick.

Not tried a free one before, but I have a paid for version http://www.nucleustechnologies.com/exchange-ost-recovery.html which works very well.

If the OST is still accessible from outlook then your best bet is to simply use outlook to export it.

If it is a "Disconnected" ost or, in other terms, that doesn't open in outlook anymore I know not of any free solution that is worth it.

I second Alan for Nucleus one I have the paid version too and it works great

Looks good.

Im running it now on a 16 gig .ost and so far so good.

Anyone have a discount code for it? Its quite pricey.

You may also consider the alternative options since there are a lot of OST to PST conversion tools. Below is a rather complete list of them:

Among them, the only free tool is "OST2PST 2.1". I can find it several years ago. Not sure if it is still available online.
