Know More about OST Files:
The major benefit of OST files is that it allows users to work in 'Cached Exchange Mode' in Outlook. Later on, when the connectivity is retrieved, these offline files will automatically get synchronized with Exchange Account. However, the main reason behind the corruption of these files is the synchronization error itself.
Recommendations from Microsoft:
Since the built-in integrity check tool is missing from the latest Outlook versions; there are two ways that can be implemented to gain data back from damaged Outlook data files and these methods are:
Delete & Re-download OST: In a recent update from Microsoft it mentioned that now it recommends deleting the existing OST file and then re-downloading it again from Server.
Outlook 'Import\ Export': If the data is not available on Server, the OST files can be converted to PST format through MS Outlook's Import Export Wizard.
Since, above-said methods can be used to recover OST files from low- intensity damage but are not recommended if the loss is at higher level. Moreover, no doubts these measures do not involve any extra cost but they could result in loss of information that will be difficult to regain if lost permanently. In addition, it requires sound technical knowledge to execute these measures; as a minor mistake can leads to adverse circumstances.
