About this course

So this is the best way to get this done

First of all...

Go to C:/Users/InsertYourFolder/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Outlook/

Make sure you can see your hidden files by going to the top of your screen - Select View - and then Check the box that says Hidden Items - Otherwise you won't see your OST files.

Now find the file you want to copy

Click on the file and copy

Then paste it in whatever folder you want.

I put mine in c:/documents/outlook files/ (Put in whatever folder you want to have your backups - This may take a few minutes especially if it's a large file.

Now you will want to save that file to a USB thumb drive or removable media. 

Now eject the thumb drive from laptop

Then take it to your desktop to restore it there.

I am doing it like this because there was no other way for me to restore Microsoft OutlookOST files that I had saved.

Okay so I again,I have Microsoft 365. You may have another version of Outlook. This is if you have OST files that you need to restore.
