Windows 7: OST not working

OST not working

I am having an ongoing issue with two seperate client emails, both on the same Hosted Exchange service.

Error where the OST file stops working.

This file C:\Users\user\outlook\me@help.com.au - Exchange.ost cannot be opened.

The only option is to go into control panel and mail and recreate the account again.

I have taken the hard drive out of one machine and ran a full scan no issue found. It will then work for a day or two then stop working.

Needless to say my client is getting very frustrated. So am I,.

I don't have access to exchange at all this service is hosted Exchange. I have contacted my service provider for this and they don't believe it to be an issue server side.
The outlook version is 2013.

Any ideas would be awesome as this is driving me crazy!!!!

Hi DavidLest, welcome to 7F!

Have you thought of repairing the Outlook Data Files (.pst and .ost)? the .ost file may be corrupt.

See this thread, http://.ost files cannot be opened | community.office365.com The first reply offers a link to an Outlook 2013 repair utility, the second mentions re-syncing Outlook with Exchange mailbox, and the remaining posts offer various repair/recovery/fix utilities, just watch some if not all of these unities may only fix the first 25 and you would have to buy the program to fix the rest.
