Description from the Publisher

MS Outlook along with Exchange Server provides an efficient email communication platform to its users. Exchange Server manages all sent/received emails and saves all user mailboxes in a single database named as EDB or Exchange Database. On the other hand, MS Outlook automatically creates OST (offline storage files) which are exact replica of Exchange server user mailbox. OST files are stored on the local user system and play very important role in uninterrupted email communication. OST file stores your email data when you are in offline mode because of no connection with Exchange Server. Further, all the changes done in OST file are synchronized with Exchange server database when connection is re-established between Exchange server and MS Outlook.

Some of them are hard disk failure, network connection failure, power failure, attack of malicious virus, abnormal termination of Outlook, synchronization errors etc. Such situations result in inaccessibility of OST file data.
