As we discussed in a prior blog, organizations moving to Office 365 typically don’t move all email to the cloud. Instead, they implement a hybrid cloud approach – moving mailboxes from a specific date forward into their Office 365 environment and keeping everything prior to that date in their on-premises Exchange Server. However, companies may need to reach back into that Exchange Server to restore data stored in an EDB file into a user’s Office 365 account or they may need to export mailboxes as a PST file so they can shut down an Office 365 account of a former employee. In this post, we will review how to connect to an Office 365 Mailbox.
In either scenario Ontrack® PowerControls™ is the perfect solution, allowing administrators the ability to connect and move the data they need between environments or export data for ediscovery or compliance, saving valuable time in the process.
