Exchange administrators face difficulties when they have to migrate from old version to new version of MS Exchange Server. Disaster could strike any time and if backup is not available then the result can be worst where an administrator has to rebuild the exchange store completely from scratch.
Such case can create unexpected consequences especially when Outlook users are using Offline Storage Table (OST) files.
OST files are susceptible to corruption due to various reasons like improper synchronization, virus infection, abrupt system shut down, etc. In addition, the problem that the administrator or a user may encounter is some items are found missing from OST file or from the mailbox after synchronization of OST file and mailbox (items here may be emails, contacts, appointments, journals, notes, attachments etc), accidental deletion of emails, or any other corruption type.
There can be many other dreading situations like the one depicted above that are faced by users of MS Exchange Server who work with .ost file. Mentioned below are some of the cases that can create nightmare like situation for an Exchange administrator:
Availability of an orphaned OST 1 GB file with no space to back it up.
Solution: The OST file is very large and another thing is there is no space available on the disk to backup the file. The first thing to do is somehow manage to create backup of the OST file on another drive, PC, or Laptop. Creating a backup of the original OST file will be a wise decision if some miss happening occurs during OST to PST conversion.
A corrupt .ost file is scanned with SACNPST.EXE and SCANOST.EXE tools that repair PSTs and OSTs. After repairing the "Repaired Successfully" message appears. You attached the file but could not view any emails in corresponding “Personal” folders or “Deleted Items” Folder.
Solution: Use OST to PST conversion software before scanning the file with built in scanning tools: SCANPST.EXE and SCANOST.EXE. The OST to PST conversion software helps to completely regain emails of .ost file into .pst file.
The .ost file is on other computer while the .pst file is on another computer. User relocated to another division and the original.pst is deleted accidentally before the new account could be created.
Solution: OST to PST conversion software is the best solution for the purpose, as it can convert any number of .ost files into .pst files with all email folders (Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items, etc.), journals, and other items existing in the .ost file.
The .ost has been damaged, inaccessible, or emails are accidentally deleted from the file.
