Public Folder Archive to Shared Mailbox Archive
I am using EV 10.0.1.1171
I have an Exchange 2003 Public Folder Archive of over 3,000 subfolders, over 460,000 mail items and is about 80GB in size. It is data that is not changing and the Public Folder in Exchange is going away. I would like to move this archive data into a Shared Mailbox Archive as we are wanting to quit using Public Folders. As I understand it the Export Wizard will not let me export a Public Folder. I did find a discussion here https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/pst-migration-public-folder-archive that suggested you could change the Archive Type to make it seem as though the archive is a Mailbox Archive rather than a Public Folder from within the SQL database. There was some concern within the discussion for future archiving and such. Of course this will no longer be getting any mail items added to it so I am not sure that is a concern, but are there other concerns?
If I were to do this could I use either the Move Utility or the Export Wizard to accomplish my task or are their concerns with not getting all of the data such as attachments or something of that nature?
