  • Exmerge greater than 2gb , alternatives?

    Hi,

    I've used exmerge in the past and I always hit the 2gb limitation and I was wondering if there was a new version of exmerge that allows me to get beyond the 2gb limitation? There are a bunch of users that I need to export their emails into a .pst file.

    I was thinking of even maybe used ontrack powercontrols , not sure if it allows beyond the 2gb limit either, but I just send them an email regarding that.

    Was wondering if there is an alternative product or an updated exmerge that can suprase the 2gb limit.

    Thanks!

    There is no updated version of exmerge because exmerge creates PST files in the old format.
    You will have to split the data out manually.

      Thanks. BTW, I contacted PowerControls and they said that it automatically creates and breakdown the large .pst files to 1.8 GB each.

      Is there a new, better tool for Exchange 2007?

        There is no separate tool for Exchange 2007. Microsoft did include an export-mailbox function in Exchange 2007 SP1, but it requires some working around. You cannot do it on the server because it requires the 32 bit version of the tools for example.

            Just out of interest, you can use exmerge based on date, it is a little more work but you can export out upto 2005, 2005 - 2007 then 2007-current (as an example). Obviously it depends on the total size, amount of users and time but it can work to give you more pst's per user.

              I thought about this also but it seems that even breaking it down yearly with this particular user goes beyond the 2GB limit still.

              I just got an email back from PowerControls and they said that there is an option on their software to exceed the 2GB limit. I might give this a try. Thanks.

                The choice is yours, yearly was an example, you can break it down more. Good luck!
