OST files are helpful while working offline with Outlook in absence of Exchange server. They hold all the information and on availability of Exchange they can be synchronized with server and all the data appear online. However, apart from this feature, OST files also serve a very realistic goal, i.e. they act as automatic backup of Outlook data.
Since Outlook is almost synchronized with Exchange every now and then, OST files also get updated at the same time. In case of any data loss issue or damage of PST files, these OST still hold all the data since last sync. They act as the true data savior in such moments.
