Solved How to restore outlook files?

Specs: Windows 7
We had to replace our exchange server and the backups as it turns out weren't working. I have one user with a 2.6G OST file on her PC. Is there a way of retrieving her email from that? I tried a utility called ost2pst.exe but it didn't work.

OST should work automatically once if you set up the email.
A new email folder with extension *.ost will be in place of the same size after synchronization.

✔ Best Answer
Microsoft has a recover pst program that you can get from their site. But when I worked on a help desk and used the program, it might have worked about once out of 15 times. When I contacted Microsoft about it, they stated that they knew that the program really did not work and there was no rush on revising it. Saying that, we are talking about five years ago when I was on the help desk.
