Moving PST Files
PST Migration Tools for Microsoft Exchange
|When you are looking for the ability to:|
PST management has been an evolving issue for Exchange administrators since the files first appeared in early versions of Microsoft Office. Market trends have shown an increasing trend toward moving PST file data to either another messaging or storage platform or to the Exchange 2010 personal archive.
The PST file migration path varies from moving network and desktop PST files back to the Exchange server mailbox level, to centralizing all PST files to be picked up by an email archiving solution, to gathering all desktop PST files for migration to a hosted mail environment. For example, a recent PST migration project Sherpa completed included moving thousands of PST files to 1,200 Exchange 2010 mailboxes. The good news is, amidst all of these options, PST migration tools are available to automate the process and tame those wild PST files.
Sherpa Software offers several convenient and automated options to locate PST files in a distributed computing environment and import the legacy email data into a centralized cloud-based repository or into a messaging platform such as Exchange 2010 (see how Mail Attender compares to PST Capture). Sherpa also offers a tool to convert email file formats into the required format for ingestion into another messaging platform or into a cloud-based storage repository. This capability ensures that all email originating in a specific environment can be converted into the required file format so important data is not lost.
|Locate, Manage and Search PST Files »||PST content is not easily accessible. When data is stored locally on desktop or laptop computers, or scattered around your network, finding PST files and collecting information can be a difficult and time-consuming task. In addition, enforcing archiving, retention and deletion policies are much more difficult when data stores are not centrally accessible to IT staff. Administrators are able to manage PST files by creating flexible rules that monitor the email infrastructure and automatically archive and enforce corporate policies with Mail Attender for Exchange.|
|Migrate PST Files to Exchange 2010 »||The markets have seen an increasing trend toward moving PST file data to the Exchange 2010 personal archive. The good news is, amidst all the options, PST tools are available to automate the migration process and tame those wild PST files. Sherpa also offers a tool to convert email files into the required format for ingestion into another messaging platform or a cloud-based storage repository. Ensure all email originating in a previous version of Exchange can be migrated to Exchange 2010 so important data is not lost with Mail Attender for Exchange.|
|Capture Statistics and Generate Reports »||The ability to report on the content of all PST files across the entire organization is an important key step in understanding the information assets an organization possesses. Gather comprehensive statistics and gain a total perspective over your entire email environment, including all PST files, with information such as: total number of PSTs, total message/attachment counts, size, and age with Mail Attender for Exchange.|
|Archive and Delete PST File Content »||Ultimately, Exchange administrators want to delete PST files and prevent end-users from creating them again. However, the information stored in those PST files is still valuable. Sherpa Software's PST management solutions allow you to transfer PST information into a separate archive location where that information can be accessed and still delete the original PST files. Transferring PST content into an archive, between email stores and giving users of those PST files access to the archived messages through Outlook, Sherpa's solutions allow you to delete unwanted PST files. This method allows PST files to be phased out with Mail Attender for Exchange.|
