PST Migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Can anyone suggest best tools or method to import PST data and migrate it to Office 365.

    We have PST data of users on their own devices(Hard drives) and users are located in different i want to know if there is a way to collect all those data without user's interference (as i don't want them to spend their time to move that data to a path) through any application and then use that PST data to office 365.

    PST data would be around 1-2 TB. So i need something which can have the process done in background without interrupting users work to collect all the PST from their hard drives and then save it on a location which would be easier for us to migrate it to office 365.

    Note : PST is saved on their drive on a particular location

    Thanks & Regards, 

    Hari Krishna

  • PST Capture is one tool to use but O365 allows network uploading of PST files. Check it here.:

  • For that amount of data, I would strongly suggest you look into third-party tools that specialize in PST migration. The tools Microsoft provide only cover the basics and are not really appropriate for big projects. You'd want a tool that does the discovery for you, client configuration where needed, bandwidth controls and so on.

  • I'd suggest Quadrotech's PST FlightDeck, but then again I work for the company :D Do your own research and find the best tool suitable for your specific scenario.

  • Hi,

    As mentioned above, PST Capture is the tool supported by Microsoft. In addition, Microsoft cannot guarantee the security of 3rd-party tools, so it's not suggested for us to recommend 3rd-party tools. Thanks for your understanding.

    If you have any helpful information, you are welcome to share them here.

  • The PST supports in Outlook only and but if you want to use its data into other email client then you should convert the data of the PST file into its supportive file format and for the migration of the data from Outlook PST to other file format like MBOX, PST, EML, MSG, etc can be done by using the PST Mailbox Converter. This tool is one of the most suitable programs. You can visit here to try or download this tool:-
