The OST file is just an email cache file. Go into Control Panel > Mail and create a new profile. Launch Outlook and the OST should be recreated.

Neemobeer says it right, the mail file can be extracted easily from Control Panel>Mail. The OST file contains all your emails with the right details of the mail folders. If that doesn't work, you shall look out for some tools that could extract the OST files.
