Public Folder Migration


Public Folders are often used to collect, organise, and share information within a team or department. By their very nature, they can grow extremely large and often get archived to avoid overloaded Exchange servers.

We can migrate your legacy archived Public Folders into the new Office 365, easier to use modern folders format. All your existing folder structure is preserved, ensuring no data is lost and ensuring as seamless as possible experience for end users.

Contact our migration experts today to discuss the best strategy for migrating your archived public folders, user mailboxes and journal mailboxes alongside your 'live Exchange server' migration.

Virtually all legacy and current archive platforms are supported, including Enterprise Vault (EV), HP Autonomy EAS, EMC EmailXtender, EMC SourceOne, Quest, Metalogix and many more.

From the outset Essential provided us with a lot of information about preparing for the migration and what to expect from the process. They also had a good understanding of compliance and audit requirements, all of which gave us a lot of confidence in their approach.
