You should be run Inbox repair tool which is scanpst.exe first find your PST File and run with scanpst.exe may be possible your pst is also corrupte this is also one reason of outlook not open.

Another thing OST File capacty are 2gB while it's more then it so it too one of the reason any way if still problem is not solved .

You can try any third party data recovery software to reair and convert you OST File .

In reply to: Hi

You can search it yourself from Google .

Just put your desire keyword in Google in your case put "ost to pst software".

You can find a large number of list of software choose any one of them Happy

If you want my opinion about software i just suggest for Recoveryfix for OST to PST software.

And you can also find demo version from here

Mentioning Exchange server most often means it's a business environment. Few private persons receive their mail in Exchange.

And that means there's somebody to manage the email system and support users, or maybe something like a help desk. They should be able to help you. Much better than experimenting yourself.

The OST-file is just an off-line copy of the contents of the Exchange server. So if you simply rename it, Outlook won't find it and will start making and filling a nice new uncorrupted ost-file. That's a riskless procedure, since you can always rename it back.
