Email conversion from Outlook MAC to Windows PST is not an easy task, it comes with a lot of concerns pertaining to data security and 100% migration of the data without any corrupt transfer. There is freeware available in market that can convert OLM to PST but there are not very useful, as they come with potential threats that can not only result in data theft but may also contain Malwares and Viruses that may destroy your entire computer/laptop. These free tools are not usually equipped to deal with complex databases, there’s a serious possibility of Data Theft as these freeware can be easily hacked, however even if you stumble upon a clean malware/virus-free tool after wasting a lot of time looking for the same over internet, it may still not be effective as they do not guarantee 100% conversion of the data , it may miss out on critical information such as images, attachments or non-English emails or even headers and subject lines of the email, there’s also a possibility that after the migration you might realize that actual OLM files would have be deleted. Moreover, these free apps come with a lot of ads and takes countless hours to complete migration without providing end user any kind of flexibility. Overall, Freeware tend to look lucrative but at the end turn out to be a more futile and unsafe as compared to paid options available in market.
