Excluding network shares from PST migration using the PstLocatorTask.exe.config file
To exclude network shares from PST migration using the PstLocatorTask.exe.config file
- On the Enterprise Vault server that runs the PST Locator task, start Windows Explorer and navigate to the Enterprise Vault program folder (for example,
C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault).
Do one of the following:
PstLocatorTask.exe.configfile exists in the folder, copy it to a safe location.
If there is no
PstLocatorTask.exe.configfile, create it by copying and renaming the file
- Open the
PstLocatorTask.exe.configfile in a text editor such as Windows Notepad.
- Search for the following text:
- Immediately below this heading, add a line to list the network shares that you do not want to search. The syntax is as follows:
<add key="SharesToAvoid" value="share_1;share_2;share_3..."/>
Where share_1, share_2, and so on, comprise a semicolon-separated list of the UNC paths of the network shares. For example, to exclude the shares \\myComputer\C$ and \\yourComputer\G$, you would type the following:
<add key="SharesToAvoid" value="\\myComputer\C$;\\yourComputer\G$"/>
- Save and close the file.
- In the Administration Console, restart the PST Locator task.
