If you're referring to PST archive files, yes this can be done.

Let me know if you're still interested.

RE: Backup pst to sql?

OST is an Offline Folder file which generally resides on the client computer so a user can continue working with Outlook when not connected to an Exchange server. You can use CDO or Outlook Object Model API to access PST or Exchange folders. There are numerous books in the market that explain basic features and terminologies related to Outlook and Exchange.

I would get a 3rd party solution for Exchange backup. You can manually backup by copying Exchange folders to PSTs and then storing them in database but I am not sure that's an optimal solution.
