.pst to Office 365 Archive

Post by frankive » Apr 11, 2018 12:23 pm

Hi.
we have quita a few .pst files (archive files) for a customers who is now using Office 365 Archive (in-place) for this.
Is it possible to use Veeam Office 365 Backup to "restore" the .pst file somehow directly into the 365 archive mailbox?

Hi Frank,

I'm afraid that is not possible. The data of the PST should be in the backup first.

There should be other tools though that can achieve this

f.ex creating a empty mailbox, import the arhive pst to it, back it up with veeam 365, restore to archive? :)

Well, that is possible obviously but wouldn't it be better then to add the data into the archive by "copying" the data into the users outlook directly? :-)
