Email Management for Exchange

Ontrack® PowerControls is a forensically sound email management tool that helps IT teams efficiently search, collect, and restore messages, mailboxes, attachments and other Microsoft® Office Outlook® items from any previous full backup.

Ontrack® PowerControls saves precious time and money by eliminating brick-level backups, slashing restore time and minimizing deleted-item retention settings. Using Ontrack PowerControls does not require changes to existing backup procedures, saving IT administrators from the many headaches typically associated with the restoration of Exchange items. For more information about specific functions and extending the software, see Functionality Overview and optional components.

Email Recovery: Find lost, deleted and archived mailbox items quickly and easily. If someone accidentally deletes an important email folder, restore the messages in minutes directly to that person's live Exchange mailbox – all while staying at your own desk. Additionally, through expanded collection capabilities within Ontrack PowerControls, IT administrators can leverage a defined workflow process to search and collect data from a live Exchange environment, effectively providing forensically sound data collection of current, real-time Exchange content.

Email Search: Set precise search criteria and run detailed queries across multiple data sources, selecting any combination of mailboxes or folders you wish to search, regardless of the data source.

Archive Restoration: Restore mailbox items from a previous full backup directly into the production server or a new or existing PST file. This eliminates having to perform time-consuming, expensive single mailbox brick-level backups. Use Ontrack PowerControls to restore:

  • Complete mailboxes, folders or individual messages
  • Attachments, contacts, calendar items
  • Public Folders database items
  • Mail items from the Microsoft Exchange Server Personal Archive mailbox and Recoverable Items feature


Migration & Consolidation: Flexible environments that allow you to update, upgrade, and migrate data are a business necessity. Ontrack PowerControls assists server migration processes while allowing your IT resources to meet their daily email management requirements.

Storage Management: By facilitating flexible ease of access to backups and legacy archives, Ontrack PowerControls reduces email management issues.

Legal/Investigations/Compliance: Meeting legal, investigations and compliance requests can be a daunting, time consuming task. There are many software products that may assist in the recovery and export of email, but not all are compliant with the techniques required for addressing the legal and technical complexities associated with forensically sound data collection. Ontrack PowerControls helps organizations meet regulatory and legal requirements, while maintaining their internal IT security policies through activity auditing and permissions control features. The easy, streamlined interface allows administrators to confidently export relevant data for ediscovery review, or to an archiving system for compliance and investigative needs.
