Anyone who works with Exchange mailbox accounts in offline mode needs OST file for Outlook which stores your mail and data. The OST file gets synced when Outlook is connected to server. This is useful when server has a maintenance or crash or any other issues. But, if you need it on different computer, usual copy/paste method wont work like it does with PST files. So, we can use EdbMails to convert OST to PST for these circumstances or to recover from a corrupted OST to create PST by convert operation.

This is safest way to migrate data from OST to PST by doing it automatically than trying to do it manually if youre not technically experienced to go through all process in outlook export and import functions. So, using third party software like EdbMails gets you user friendly GUI with automated conversion and 24/7 support.
