Hi. Help me to understand. The problem has one of the employees, he demolished mail, while maintaining files .ost. In fact there should be no problems. Always when the client connects to the Outlook (if storage was Mailbox Exchange) is automatically pulled from the mail server. But this is not happening. It draws only the contacts and everything. I looked a mailbox on a server size of 20kb. And the size of the .ost 135mb. It is logical that there is a server-mails therefore they .ost. Surfing network I found pair program conversion .ost to .pst. But they didn’t help. Are there any fast methods to do this?

So you are saying the mailbox on the server is basically empty and the ost has stuff in it? First, check the Deleted Items Recovery folder - if the stuff was deleted recently, it will be there. They do age out of that folder, usually after 14 days (but it depends on the server config, you might have them longer).

The only way to get outlook items out of the oust is to set outlook offline and export to a pst if you can use the ost, if the ost is not in the profile, you will need to use a recovery program - i have a list here - Convert an Offline File (.ost) to a Personal File (.pst) - there are a lot of recovery programs on the market but many are rebranded versions of certain ones on the list. (FWIW, this post will bring the spammers out of the woodwork - all saying their program is the best. Never TRUST a spammer.)
