In this post, I will try to resolve all the issue of Outlook users who are working with Microsoft Exchange Server. When users are synchronizing with exchange, then by default an Offline storage table (OST) file is created in your machine. Sometimes an OST file becomes corrupt and user needs to convert all OST file email data into PST file format. Some other reasons also occurs, which are given below:
Exchange Server can unexpectedly crash due to power failure, virus attack and any other reasons. An exchange server crash land you nowhere as you might not be able to connect to the Server. In such conditions are very challenging as well as difficult to handle as in most of such cases they showed various error messages.
In the case of Server downtime or exchange server maintenance, you will not be able to access your email data. However at times it becomes very necessary to have access to the data items. Every user mailboxes, are stored in an OST file, which works with synchronization with Exchange server. To access the mail items, you need to export OST to PST and import it to MS Outlook application.
Converting OST to PST helps in converting the data from one place to another. This is very helpful in case the organization is shifting, or you want to move your crucial data on a different system.
Since OST files let you send/receive and delete email files even when it is not connected to Exchange Server. And once connected, it gets synchronized with the server. That means all the changes that have been made to the OST file while working offline mode will be reflected in the server. However, this Offline storage file might get corrupt. This will lead to inaccessibility to user email items. The OST file gets corrupt due to many reasons and they are:
- Unexpected hardware failure
- Software related issues
- Application termination
- Abnormal termination

For this you can use the backup copy of the Outlook OST file. And the PST is a format that can store all the mail items from the OST file and you can continue working.
