Quadrotech Announcement: Public Folder Shuttle

Nov 23, 2018 by Paul Robichaux

Public folders have been around a long time. Even though Microsoft promoted them heavily at first, as time has passed, their usage has diminished; most organizations have long since migrated their public folder content to modern public folders in Office 365, to SharePoint, or to the digital trash can. Microsoft has helped that transition by offering better solutions for data and file management and by improving the quality of their free public folder migration tools.

With those factors in mind, we’ve regretfully made the decision to stop developing and selling Public Folder Shuttle.

We’ve found that the amount of market interest in legacy public folder migration technology wasn’t sufficient for the amount of development time and resources which we would need to dedicate. At Quadrotech, our strategy for product development is to be #1 or #2 in every market we’re in or to exit that market. So that’s what we have done with Public Folder Shuttle, and we have set the product team working on bigger and better things.

If you’re an existing Public Folder Shuttle customer, rest assured we will continue to support your investment and migration operations with our usual world-class support capabilities.

If you’ve landed here looking for solutions to a public folder problem, we would recommend you take a look at Microsoft solutions to this issue as a starting point, as their approaches are steadily improving.
