OST to PST software then import into new Office 365 OST file

Hi Experts,

I have succeeded with a couple of ost files (Different exchange provider) converting to pst then importing into a newly created office 365 profile.

But for some reason not all mail is being exported into the PST file, for example: one particular pst file gets to a certain point and stops. I could manually export folder by folder on the ones not working but that would be rather painful I am looking at Systools OST to PST recommended or not?

Look forward to hearing from you, thanks.

If the OST files; you are migrating to Office 365 are healthy, then you can use Kernel Import PST to Office 365 tool which can directly migrate PST/OST files to Office 365, but the only limitation is that PST/OST file should be healthy.

As you said that there is some corruption issue in OST files, then you need to use Kernel for OST to PST converter tool. It can repair a damaged OST file, and then convert them to PST and easily exports OST data to Office 365.

Dear @it_fan, converting ost files to pst then importing pst into office 365 will be quite time-consuming. There are many applications available by using them you can directly import OST files to Office 365 (Exchange Online) profile. You can find a suitable application by searching OST to Office 365 migration tool.

@VIP Sharma has already posted such application so you may have a look at the same. I got the same software listed on FileHippo.

I will suggest you to never go for manual procedure. As it might cause of data loss, so instead of converting OST to PST file then import PST file to Office 365 account,the best way is to choose trustworthy tool, as per my opinion SysTools OST to PST Converter would be the best option. This utility is 100% safe, secure and authentic. I would like to share a very useful blog which will describe how to import OST to Office 365 account.
