Recover contacts and emails from an OST file

Are you having problems with your mailbox? In this way you save your business or private emails and contacts.

We now construct the following scenario. You have an e-mail inbox with one of the local providers and have been the victim of an attack. All of your emails and contacts have been deleted. The provider charges a lot of money to restore your data and may even need 3-5 days, which you don't have. The last chance to get your data quickly and easily is via the local OST file on your notebook or computer.

But how?

Here comes the Offline OST to PST Converter for use!

After the OST file has been successfully converted into a PST file and imported into Outlook, you first have a usable data backup and permanent access to your e-mails and contacts again. In addition, the data is also available online again after synchronization.
