Public Folder Shuttle

Migrate your legacy public folders to the most suitable target

What is Public Folder Shuttle?

Public Folder Shuttle is a powerful, intelligent solution for public folder analysis and migration. The solution is able to move legacy data into the most appropriate target in Office 365, using a highly automated approach.

Public Folder Shuttle analyzes characteristics within data hierarchies, and repositories in Exchange public folders, and classifies their contents. Once analysis is complete, the solution predicts where the data should be placed, provisions the relevant targets (like Office 365 groups, or shared mailboxes etc.), and migrates the selected information to the chosen destination. The solution can also find obsolete data and is able to remove or archive it as required.
