Recovering orphaned ost files (Microsoft Outlook 2003). The following steps convert an ost file to a pst file.

1) Download "mailrecovery 2.0" from (Note, the page is in Japanese.)
- Go to website above
- Click on "mailrecovery2.0"
- On next html page, click on the text to the right of the first yellow folder (do not click save target). This will download the "zip" file.
2) Run the .exe program from within the download. (The file extension .rar is like a .zip file. You will need an .rar extractor - I use WinRar, which has a trial version.)
- Use the key is 2233-71841
3a) Run ExchangeRecovery program against the old orphaned ost file for converting ost to pst files.
3b) Run OutlookRecovery to repair or fix pst files.

The last 3 months have been miserable without my contacts from my previous job. (It is amazing how dependent on outlook we become...and then outlook 2003 orphans the files. What luck!) Finally, I have found a solution. I want everyone else to have the same good fortune without paying the typical outrageous recovery fees.

Thanks and good luck.
