  Outlook 2010 .OST
Answer/Resolution Answer/Resolution
  .OST Files

The Outlook Offline Folder (.ost) integrity check tool (scanost.exe) is not included in Outlook 2010. This tool was recommended in previous versions for fixing errors in Outlook data files (.ost).

If there is an issue with a specific folder, you can resync the folder:

  1. Right-click the folder and then click Properties.

  2. In the dialog box that appears, click the Clear Offline Items button and then click OK.

  3. On the Outlook 2010 ribbon, click the Send/Receive tab.

  4. Click Update Folder.
Be careful when doing this with users that have large in-boxes as then entire folder will be re-downloaded and may take an extended period of time to do so.
