I bought a program from OfficeRecovery.com and saved all the info that
was in an ost file. You are not able to open them like any ordinary pst
file.

eric,
    Where did the user store the ost? by default they are located in
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost. These are not stored in the
priv.edb.

        Never heard of OST files. Native Outlook file format is PST
files, is this what you meant? These are not saved in any special way,
they're just files on the disk. If you did indeed delete his old profile
I would suggest you lock down that hard drive ASAP. Get it out of that
machine and put in another and run some file recovery utilities on it.
Don't let the space get overwritten by new files or the old files are
gone for good.

        I have a user that was part of another domain and recently came
into ours.  On the old domain, he used OST files.  When he came in, I
added him to the domain and created a new email profile to the server.
Not knowing he had the OST files, I deleted the old profile.  Then come
to find out he needs the info that was stored in the OST files.  He is
running Outlook 2000.  Any suggestions on how to extract the data?
