From OST to PST...

My son needs to switch from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 2007.
If I am right, Outlook 2010 keeps everything in an ost-file. Outlook 2007
uses a pst-file.
Does there exist FREE conversion-program's?

You're not right. pst is the normal outlook file, ost is an offline
folder file used normally to sync with Exchange server.
OK, but then : how is it possible that I do not find a PST-file anywhere on
the harddisk in the PC with Outlook 2010?

ost is for Exchange
Did you untick the Hide all file extensions and then check Show all files and
folders or go and look in Windows Explorer at the default location of the pst files
Since you did not post your OS I am giving you the default location as per below. OS
dependent. Mine is a W2K3 Server and the Outlook pst file should be about the same
on your OS which is a mystery at this point

Windows Explorer\Document and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook
