Hi,

There are many tricks to scan, repair&convert Offline Outlook Data File (. east) to Outlook PST file.

1st, Microsoft provides an official tool know as Inbox Repair Tool (scanpst.exe)&Scanost.exe to do the scan & repair OST file. However, if your OST file accessible, then you can try the conversion manually, as given below:
  1. Open Outlook.
  2. If you are having any doubt, then you can't try to create a new PST file. (Before starting  all process, make sure you can convert the entire contents in the OST file to PST file).
  3. Go to the OST file, choose and copy the entire contents to be migrated within few mouse clicks.
  4. Go back to the new accessible Outlook Data Files, then past entire the contents into the Outlook Data Files

That will do the migration.

You can also try some other methods to export the contents of the OST file to an Outlook PST file

2nd, when you are accessing the Exchange server, then you can use the Export-Mailbox cmdlet exports methods. Below is the syntax about doing that:

Folders of the mailbox:  Export-Mailbox -Identity user@xyz.com -TargetMailbox ExportMailbox -TargetFolder MyData


To export data to a .pst file: Export-Mailbox -Identity user@xyz.com -PSTFolderPath C:\PSTFiles\user.pst

To export data from all the mailboxes of users in the XYZ hosted organization:

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "OU=XYZ,OU=ConsolidatedMessenger,OU=Hosting,DC=Fabrikam,DC=com" | Export-mailbox -PSTFolderPath c:\PSTFiles

3rd, if you cannot restore the OST data via Outlook, neither can you connect with the Exchange Server, then you can try any companion OST to PST conversion program, below is a list of them:
