Files can be exported from archives to PSTs using the EV web search app. This is especially useful for Exchange Public Folder archives since there is no way to export to PST from the Vault Admin Console.

  1. Add a file called webapp.ini to the root of the Enterprise Vault server's installation folder.

  2. Add one of the following entries into webapp.ini:

    1. RestoreToPSTOption=All

    2. RestoreToPSTOption=domain\user

  3. Save webapp.ini

  4. Restart IIS (not necessary with Server 2008 R2 and IIS 7.5).

    1. Open a command line and type iisrest

  5. Open the EV search app: http://evservername/enterprisevault/search.asp, where evservername is the name of your EV server.

  6. Choose an archive, enter your search criteria and click Search.

  7. Either click Add to Basket or Restore all Results.

  8. If you added the results to a basket you can export the results by clicking Restore and then enter the following information:

    1. Server Name

    2. Mailbox Alias

    3. Click PST

    4. Save in folder: A path local to the EV server or a file share on a remote computer

    5. Data Outlook File: Outlook Personal Folders File

    6. Click Restore

  9. If you clicked Restore all Results enter the following information:

    1. Server Name

    2. Mailbox Alias

    3. Click PST

    4. Save in folder: A path local to the EV server or a file share on a remote computer

    5. Data Outlook File: Outlook Personal Folders File

    6. Click Restore

  10. Repeat as required.

NB: The largest file that can be exported is 50MB and a maximum of 5,000 items can be exported at one time.
