Ever faced situation like, while opening your MS Outlook account with the Microsoft Exchange Server, you got an clear message saying that your offline OST files somehow got corrupted and can’t be opened now? The error message could be like this Cannot open your default email folders. This kind of error message commonly means that your OST file is corrupt.

So What are OST files ?

OST files are the Offline Storage Table files. These are the MS Outlook offline folders that works in conjunction with the Microsoft Exchange Server while synchronizing. The OST files are the exact images of the Exchange Server folders that resides and works in the backend. MS Outlook connects with the Exchange Server by using the Cached Exchange Mode. The best feature of the OST file is that you can work with the OST files in MS Outlook and access all the folders without connecting to the Exchange Server.

While OST files are easy to use, but sometimes they can be hard to maintain. These file are prone to corrupt and can be corrupted easily. Don’t get scared, even if your OST file is corrupt, you still can recover your OST file emails, Contacts etc. I’m going to describe here a great tool called OST Recovery that will convert, recover and restore your corrupt OST files within minutes.

Reason Behind a Corrupt OST File?

Lots of reason can be involved behind a corrupt OST file but the main reason are listed below:

  1. Users can delete a file or remove folders from the Exchange Server profile and if that happens, this could be the main reason behind your corrupt OST file.

  2. If you do not have a good antivirus or your Firewall is not activated, then a software failure can also corrupt your OST file.

  3. Make sure while synchronizing, your internet connection never gets interrupted. Sudden interruption of network in the Exchange Server is also the basic reason of OST file corruption.

  4. While accessing Outlook, if a sudden power failure occurs or you close Outlook unintentionally without following the proper procedure, then this could lead to the corruption of your OST file.

  5. Always be careful while accessing the OST file offline, sometimes a small change to internal structure of the OST file will give enough error message to bother you.

How to Recover From Corrupt OST Files?

There are some manual methods that you could try to recover from a corrupt OST file. But to follow the manual method, you need to have the knowledge about the file folder and location of MS Outlook. The main drawbacks of following manual methods are:

Better to have the knowledge of file structure of your system,

  1. Hard to recover the Contacts from a corrupt OST file,

  2. Some procedure require connection to Exchange Server while recovering.

  3. More importantly, manual methods only work successfully if the corruption is minor.

The best way to recover the Emails from a corrupt OST file is by using a third party tool. You do not need to have prior knowledge about internal structure or anything. All you have to do is follow the on screen guideline and then all of your emails will be restored back in the format of PST, MSG, EML etc. The best software to convert and recover OST file to PST is namely the OST Recovery tool.
