About the PST Migrator wizard
The main features of the wizard are as follows:
You can migrate several PST files at the same time.
You can either match PSTs to archives manually, or allow PST Migrator to do an automatic correlation based on the permissions set on the PST files. The automatic correlation can save you a lot of time, but it is important that you understand the process and make suitable preparations.
PST Migrator processes PST files that are on a mapped network drive or in a shared network folder. You cannot use it to search across users' disks, migrating all the PST files that it finds.
PST Migrator archives only those types of items for which you have enabled archiving. To view or modify the types of items that are archived, start the Administration Console and go to the Message Classes tab of the Exchange PST Migration policy properties.
If you have configured customized shortcuts in the Exchange PST Migration policy, then the PST Migrator uses these settings. Otherwise the shortcut content settings configured in the Exchange Mailbox policy are used.
You specify the required archiving settings as you work through the wizard.
PST migrator does not use any other settings from the Exchange PST Migration policy.
It is impossible to specify a migration process that suits everybody. For example, you may want to delete PST files after migrating them or you may want to continue using them. PST Migrator provides great flexibility, but you must think carefully about how you want to carry out the migration.
