> Archive your PST files in Exchange 2010 Top

After migrating to Exchange 2010 many organizations want to archive their PST files in new archive mailboxes, and at last, remove PST files from their network.

The problem is that the standard tool provided with Exchange 2010 does the job only-partially as it doesn't provide a way to collect all PST files across your corporate network. Also, it doesn't include any post-archiving actions like removing the PST files from user's profile or mark them as read-only.

PSTStation helps organizations run a full archiving process on PST files with a unique tool that includes a search engine to locate PST files over the network, a native archive connector to Exchange 2010 and a job engine for post-actions on PST files.

With PSTStation Corporate®, you will:

  • locate PST files stored on your network wherever they are stored
  • select emails/folders directly in the source PST files
  • archive to Exchange 2010 24/7
  • remove PST file from user's profile or mark as read-only

> How to keep an eye on your PSTs? Top

PSTs that become too big or oversized can become instable and lead to loss of data.
The best way to avoid this is to often check PST's size, warn users when it comes over a non-acceptable limit to let users take appropriate actions like split, delete or move content in another PST file.

Thanks to PSTStation Corporate's Monitoring job, IT administrators can now simplify PSTs monitoring by running a regular size checking on remote PSTs wherever they are stored. If a PST oversizes, PSTStation Corporate® automatically notifies owner's PST that he must take appropriate actions. It can also notify any group of administrators that some PSTs have reached their maximum allowed size.
