Running the PST Collector task
The PST Collector task copies PST files from users' computers to the PST holding folder. It copies only the PST files that have a status of "Ready to copy". It uses the migration priority of the file when it collects files. Files that have a higher priority are copied first.
You can restrict the number of files in the holding area so that the PST Migrator task can process all the files during its scheduled run. This ensures that the period for which items within PST files are unavailable is as short as possible.
The account under which the task runs must have Delete access to the original location of the PST file. The easiest way to ensure that the task has the correct access is to run it using an account in the domain administrators' group.
To run the PST Collector task
- In the Tasks listing of the Administration Console, right-click the PST Collector task and then, on the shortcut menu, click Start.
Do one of the following:
Right-click the task and then, on the shortcut menu, click Run Now.
