A PST file is Personal Folder file in Microsoft Outlook. It is an open proprietary file format used to store copies of messages, calendar events, and other items within Microsoft software such as Microsoft Exchange server, Windows Messaging and MS Outlook. These PST files are originally shipped with the MS Outlook and are used to access Exchange server mailboxes.

While migrating Outlook 2013 PST data to Outlook 2016 people usually follow manual method which is complex to use. Instead of that I prefer you to use a third party tool for migration.
