Recover and export an orphaned OST file

The Exchange offline file (.ost) is a local copy of the Exchange server's mailbox present in your environment. When such a server's mailbox is inaccessible for an extended period of time or cannot be accessed, the OST file is referred to as orphaned. These files can get orphaned due to Exchange server crash, hard-disk errors, inaccessible Exchange server mailboxes and so on. EdbMails allows you to recover such orphaned OST files and convert them to PST. Read More

Recover and convert the encrypted OST file to PST

Recover and convert the encrypted OST files

An OST file can be encrypted using Outlook's account settings feature, preventing data mishandling and unwanted access. Therefore, passwords are required to access the data from the encrypted files. Such encrypted Outlook database files are susceptible to corruption, rendering the data inaccessible. Using the EdbMails application, you can recover the contents of an encrypted or password-protected files without any encryption key and convert them to PST. Read More

Recover deleted Mailbox items, folders from OST file

When mail items are deleted from Outlook or an Exchange server, they are usually found in the Deleted Items folder. However, if you accidentally delete those items from the Deleted Items folder as well, you must choose to recover those items. The best approach in such scenarios is to recover the deleted items from the OST file and convert it into a PST with EdbMails. Using the tool, you can recover deleted mailboxes, folders, files etc within a few clicks. Read More

Recover Metadata and Attachments

Recover Metadata and Attachments

Metadata is any information contained within an email, such as "Message headers," "Message-ID," "Subject," "To address," "From address," "Date and Time" stamps, "Cc," "Bcc," and so on. When natively exporting an OST file, important metadata information may be lost, risking data integrity. Furthermore, if the original source file is corrupted or infected, recovering the metadata becomes even more difficult. EdbMails easily recovers and exports all metadata information, ensuring data consistency. You can save background images, attachments (with all extensions), appointments, and meeting schedules and export them to PST. Read More

Recover and export unlimited OST files

EdbMails allows you to recover an unlimited number of OST files and convert each recovered file into a separate PST file. It does not impose any size or folder restrictions for the recovery and export operations. You can recover and export the entire data to PST in a few clicks. Read More

Granular recovery of OST file

Granular recovery of OST file

The recovery of specific items from a mailbox resulting in a complete recovery is referred to as granular recovery. This could be an email, a calendar item, a contact, a note, a journal entry, or anything else. EdbMails enables the recovery of granular OST data. In the Settings option, you can apply include/exclude filters to export specific items based on the 'Sent and Received Date', 'From' 'To' 'Cc', 'Bcc' 'Subject', and 'Attachment Name'. Read More

The OST file contains all of the mailbox data since the creation of the account.
