Hello, I have an OST file which i got it from my office and I am unable to add it to my outlook in my home PC. how can I do that? I tried couple of things. Is there a free  tool which can convert it to PST?  I tried few things..
1.changed the extension to PST - did not solve the issue
2.tried free OST viewer - not showing the content of my mails.
3.tried free PST scanner - after recovering, it wanted me to purchase it to show the content
Can anybody help me on this please?

OST files are not meant to be imported. There probably isn't a free solution. You would do better to copy the emails you want to a PST (personal folder) at work, then bring the PST file home.


This link explains what the files really are.

This has info about converting.
