Anyone can provide manual methods to export my Office 365 mailbox to Outlook PST?

Else, do I have to do it by using third-party software? One of my friends lost his data while attempting this task manually, so he went with an automated tool. However, I am searching for an authentic manual practice to accomplish this task.
