Under some circumstances, you can not access Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox using Microsoft Outlook. Such circumstances may occur due to permission issues, corrupt OST file, or synchronization problems. In all such cases, OST to PST conversion can not take place and thus the OST file can not be updated. At this point of time, the OST file becomes orphaned and unusable. In such circumstances, manual conversion of the OST file becomes essential.

b)Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Office Outlook could not access the specified folder location. The operation failed.
