Summary: The blog describes the best manual approaches to convert OST file to PST file format in Outlook 2016, 2013, and 2010.

MS Outlook provides an option to access Exchange Server mailboxes locally on the Outlook application even in the absence of Internet connectivity. It allows users to work in the offline mode which will get synchronized with the Exchange Server later. Despite having many advantages, an OST file is vulnerable to corruption due to various reasons such as virus and malware attack, abrupt system shutdown, sudden termination of Outlook program, unintentional deletion of user mailboxes, etc. However, to cater such issues, you can simply convert OST file to PST rather than fixing the OST corruption.

Manual Approaches to export OST file to PST in Outlook 2016

  1. Archive Method
  2. Import & Export Method
  3. Professional OST to PST Converter tool

Let's explain each one in detail:

Note: It is advised to take a backup copy of your essential data before performing manual methods.

Archive Method:

  • Launch MS Outlook.
  • Go to File, and click on Archive.
