Using DataNumen Exchange Recovery to Recover Data from OST Files

 
 

When disaster occurs on Microsoft Exchange server, such as server crashes, server database corruption, etc., the Exchange offline folder (.ost) files on the client computer still contain the mail messages and all other items of your Exchange mail account. You can use DataNumen Exchange Recovery to scan the OST files, recover data, and save them into PST files that can be opened by Microsoft Outlook.

Moreover, when you encounter various errors and problems with OST files, such as data corruption, synchronization errors, deleting emails by mistake, oversized 2GB OST file problem, etc., you can always use DataNumen Exchange Recovery to recover data from it.

 
Note: Before starting the recovery process, you may try the free methods to convert OST to PST first.
