The short answer is that with Enterprise Vault alone, you can't.

You might want to consider our product Archive Shuttle, that can. There are other third party migration products too, you may want to look them over.

You can increase the Mailbox quota of user and then restore all archived items back to original mailbox.

Refer :

But that will restore ALL items, not just those with a shortcut... right?

Why would you migrate away from EV? (curious)

As for your question, you will need (as Rob also stated) a 3rd party tool, and I know Archive Shuttle will do the trick.

The built in EV option is to restore everything, yuo cannot select 'only items with shortcuts'.

Thank you, Gertjan, MCSE, MCITP,MCTS, SCS, STS

As Rob says there are various products that can help. I work for a company called TransVault that develops a popular EV migration product(in fact I think it was the first) called TransVault Migrator.  Asking to only restore items with shortcuts is a very common requirement and something that can be done with our product.

It's able to understand not only what's in your archive but which items have shortcuts associated with them so you can use that as a filter to limit the data migrated.

Hope this helps.

thank you for all of your answers!

The reason why: We like to migrate to a Cloud Solution, so I need my Mails back ;)

My problem is not solved, but i know how to deal with it.

Kind Regards

You can have EV in combination with a cloud solution. I personally would keep the EV archive because it can save you time in getting all live mail into the cloud.

Also take into account: Cloud is not always the right solution. Just because it is the hype now does not mean it is the right thing to do.
The EV environment migration may take time and capacity costs that will probably significantly lower your ROI when you move to the cloud.
