If you are using Outlook 2019, an older version on your Windows 10 PC, the app will automatically store a copy of all your emails, contacts, as well as calendars with two different data files for offline access.
The data files are very reliable, but sometimes, they can stop working or get damaged, so all desktop Outlook versions bundle a repair tool to fix problems with .pst files, and automatically generate the .ost file again.
In this post, we’ll show steps to repair corrupted data files, as well as get back missing items in Outlook 2019, Outlook 2016, and older versions with a .ost or .pst file.
If you are using an Exchange, Office 365, or Outlook.com account, and want to fix issues with an .ost file, you can close the email app, and follow these steps below
After you complete these steps above, launch the desktop Outlook version again and recreate the .ost file for the account you want to repair.
