How to Convert NST to PST File?

Although the process is easy, you will first have to change your NST file extension to OST. We’ve divided what to do into two parts. Just remember that you will have to use the OST recovery software – you can find and download it from its official website.

Here’s part 1 of what you do:

  • Copy the NST file that you want to convert
  • Paste it into a different location
  • Right-click on it, and then proceed to change the document’s name from .nst to .ost
  • Tap the OK button to confirm

Here’s part 2:

  • Download the OST recovery software
  • Run it and then launch it once it’s been installed
  • Find the renamed .NST doc
  • Enter recovery mode, by following the instructions on the screen
  • Tap the OK button to confirm
  • You should see your OST data being displayed
  • Click on the Save button to confirm and have your data saved as PST

In case you’re wondering, yes, the tool is free.

Why is the Conversion Taking Long?

If it’s taking especially long to convert your files to PST, not to worry. We’ve discussed some easy fixes for you. They will also help if the conversion keeps stopping.

Let’s get into it.

Solution 1: Check Your Internet Connection

A poor WIFI connection can cause this issue. Moving closer to your router, or connecting to another wireless network should help.

If not, try connecting and then disconnecting to the internet, as well as enabling and then disabling Airplane Mode. Your network connection will be refreshed if you’re going the latter route. Any network error that is running amok will be cleared.

Here’s how you do this:

  • Open the control panel
  • Find the aeroplane icon and tap it on
  • Wait a few seconds and then tap it off

Solution 2: Force Stop the Software

Minor bugs and glitches can be responsible. Usually, force stopping the converter software helps.

All you do is:

  • Open the converter tool
  • Press both the Alt + F4 buttons
  • Press Control + Alt + Delete
  • Click on the Task Manager option on the screen
  • Select the software that you want to force quit
  • Tap the End Task button
  • Press both the Windows button + R
  • Enter ‘CMD’ into the dialog box and then run it

Solution 3: Uninstall and then Re-install the Converter

If you’re still having trouble, a stubborn software problem might be lurking. Uninstalling and then re-installing the converter may be the way to go.

Not to worry, when you sign back in all your saved data would be back.

Here’s how you uninstall it:

  • Find the software on the home screen
  • Right-click it and then tap the uninstall button
  • Go to the Recycle Bin
  • Find the application
  • Right click it
  • Tap the Delete button

Go to the OST Recovery Converter website and then re-download it afterwards.

Hopefully, the issue will be gone now. If it’s still around, you might have to call the program’s support team. There may be an issue with it that only they can fix, like a bug.
