Converting OST to PST Outlook 2013 using ‘OST Extractor Pro‘ from USL Software to convert the OST files. It works by cleanly migrating data across OST to PST and results in totally accurate output.
Outlook 2013 is an email client that is very popular for all the emailing needs users have. The client was followed by updates 2016 and 2017, but 2013 version is still in widespread use. Today, we are talking about a specific situation where users need to convert OST to PST Outlook 2013, which currently doesn’t go as planned. In fact, it can make your entire data full of frustration and problems.
The article can be applied to all Outlook editions, but for the sake of the specificity, we’ll stick to Outlook 2013.
When you first connect your email account to Outlook 2013, Outlook starts downloading the data to OST files on your computer so you can work even offline. The file is mostly used with Exchange account or when you use ‘Outlook Connector’ to connect to your Outlook account (not the email app). When the internet connection is restored, the OST file works directly with the Outlook and syncs all the changes to the servers you made while you were offline. If you delete the OST file, Outlook will create it again when you launch it again the next time.
It is not to be confused with PST, which is also a data file Outlook uses to store the data on your computer. It is most commonly used with POP3, IMAP, and web-based email accounts. And it is also, and mostly, used to store data as a backup. Since PST is not limited by the space offered on the servers by your email service provider.
Working With OST & PST
This confusion is what often leads to inaccessible or non-working OST files. It should be noted that OST file doesn’t work in isolation; it works only when you have Outlook running the original email account properly. It’s basically nothing but replica of your mailboxes on servers which is constantly being synced to the servers whenever there is internet connection. PST, on the other hand, can be used to archive or backup data.
Which takes us to an important distinction between these files – if there any problems with your Outlook 2013, or if you have uninstalled Outlook, or if you have deleted the email account associated with the OST file – the OST files are often useless. If you have backed up your data in PST files, you can import them easily. But OST format is not what is going to help you.
So, what if you mistakenly deleted your email account (most often happens when an employee leaves or switches companies), and thinking you can take OST file with you to later import it into your Outlook 2013 in your personal computer? Most users panic when they realize it cannot be done.
But lucky for you, it is possible to get your data stuck in OST files back.
And that is by converting OST to PST Outlook 2013. Thankfully, there are third-party converters that let you do that. And there is no better tool for doing that than “OST Extractor Pro” from USL Software.
