DocAve Migrator for Exchange Public Folder Migration

Migrate. Quickly consolidate enterprise content from legacy systems or previous Microsoft SharePoint versions into Microsoft SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, and SharePoint Online.

Exchange Public Folder Migrator allows organizations to:

  • Easily streamline the data transfer

    from Exchange Public Folders to SharePoint
  • Preserve and map all associated metadata and security settings

    of Public Folder content during the migration

DocAve Exchange Public Folder Migrator for SharePoint provides an efficient and cost-effective approach to seamlessly migrate from Microsoft Exchange to Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and 2010.

Microsoft Exchange Public Folders have long been a destination for users to share information and served as a central repository to store messages, files, calendars, contacts, and more. More recently, however, organizations have begun to search for reliable ways to migrate business-critical content into SharePoint.

The DocAve Pre-Migration Scanner will detect and notify you of any illegal characters, user permissions, user names, user domains, and other legacy elements that must be mapped in order to migrate successfully into SharePoint.

Looking to migrate data across SharePoint of the same version or within one SharePoint farm? Check out DocAve Content Manager.

DocAve Migrators and Content Manager form our Migration Solution that offer migration from previous and current SharePoint versions and a variety of legacy platforms to SharePoint 2010, 2013, or SharePoint Online.
