How to Recover Outlook OST Error Messages?

Outlook OST Error Messages

When a user uses the MS Outlook emailing platform for opening an already corrupted or orphan OST file of offline folders in an Exchange run email set up or when that user tries to synchronize that corrupt OST file with his mailbox on the MS Exchange server system, then he is bound to encounter certain error messages that might be confusing for him as to why they are appearing and what wrong has he done to his system or that email data. For simplifying that confusion a little bit, here is a list of possible errors that can be seen after OST corruption.

  • Encounter a large numbers of conflict items
  • Cannot open your default email folders. The file xxxx.ost is not an offline folder file
  • Cannot open particular Outlook items when offline
  • Unable to expand the folder…Errors could have been detected in the file xxxx.ost. Quit all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox Repair Tool
Problems Encountered Often with OST
Furthermore, while using the OST files of offline folders in the Exchange run server system, one can also face the problems mentioned underneath quite frequently, which all can be solved easily and quickly by employing any OST Recovery software of professional make.
  • Some crucial mail messages or other email objects are deleted mistakenly from your Exchange mailbox – Due to the habit of keeping your Inbox and other email folders clean, you tend to remove obsolete emails and other data from time-to-time. This habit is good but sometimes it can play havoc on your crucial data when you accidentally remove some crucial emails or other important email items from your mailbox. Even if you have done this mistake accidentally, there is a chance of recovery of those items easily if you employ a professional OST Recovery tool to get back deleted data.
  • Problems faced while converting OST to PST – Sometimes, when you use a sub-standard tool to convert OST to PST, you end up losing your crucial data. This can be prevented by choosing a high-performing tool for the purpose of converting OST to PST.
  • Downtime issue because Exchange is in recovery mode currently – Sometimes, when your Exchange server is in the recovery mode, you cannot send-receive emails using your OST file and you cannot even sync that with the server mailbox due to downtime. This is then you need to convert OST to PST so that you can at least send/receive emails using that PST file with Outlook application without the need of Exchange server.
  • OST file has become too bulky or oversized (OST file size has reached or exceeded the limit of 2GB) – Old versions of Outlook limit the file size to 2GB beyond which the OST file gets corrupted. This again can be rectified through OST data recovery.
