Default How to convert OST file from Outlook 2003 to PST file?

I realize that there are a number of commercial programs that claim to be able to do this conversion. Since this is for a one time individual use I was hoping to find something more affordable. Perhaps you can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Maybe you should try to do everything yourself without using software? read first what recommendations gives Microsoft. https://support.office.com/en-US/art...2-F331F60E2790
If nothing happens, then I can advise you to use Recovery Toolbox for Outlook. This is a good and reliable tool, which I myself use. https://osttopst.recoverytoolbox.com/
Also, I think that this information will be useful to you.

Stephen, what are you trying to do exactly? If the file is on a computer and you can open/read the email that you're trying to use, all you need to do is save the mail to a backup. That would be the simplest way. Use Outlook to backup your current mailbox.

Like Midnight said, open outlook and archive the emails to a PST... If you have a OST and the mailbox has been deleted, then there is alot of freeware that can convert the OST to PST... no need to pay for it, just DL a few and try them out...
