Export \ Import Calendar from PST and overwriting existing calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm doing export \ Import of data to Exchange 2013 using PST export \ Import..

    I have a PST files with a Calendar and Contacts.

    When I'm Importing the Calendar and Contacts the Import job creates a new calendar and a new contacts folder.

    Can you tell me how can Import the data to the existing Calendar and contacts sections without creating new ones ?

    Thanks

  •  I got it to work using the cmdlet below:

    New-MailboxImportRequest userid-FilePath \\server\pst\file.pst -IncludeFolders "calendar"

    It simply only overwrites the existing calendar.

  • So it's creating a Calendar folder under the Calendar folder, right?  That's what you're telling it to do.  Don't specify the -TargetRootFolder or specify the mailbox root.

  • Ed, can you clarify - will this overwrite existing entries in the calendar? I need to import an exported calendar into an existing calendar - but don't want to overwrite the existing calendar entries

  • It should add items that aren't already there and if the items are already in the folder, skip them.
