Recoverable Items (Office 365 or Exchange) Migration Guide

MigrationWiz now offers the option to migrate recoverable items in Office 365 and Exchange environments. This option is applicable to Office 365 to Office 365 migration scenarios and Exchange (2013+ or Hosted) to Office 365 migration scenarios.

This will migrate the following recoverable items:

  • Mail
  • Calendar
  • Contacts
  • Tasks
  • Journals
  • Notes

The following folder types are supported:

  • Recoverable items: Deletions
  • Recoverable items: Purges
  • Recoverable items: Versions

Migration Steps

To migrate these items, follow the steps below. 

  1. Create a new migration project.
  2. Set source and destination to "Recoverable Items."
  3. Add Support Option MigrateAllRecoverableItems=1. Without this option, only email items will be migrated.
  4. Add Support Option OverrideRecoverableItemsFolderMapping=1. This option will apply folder mappings from source to destination for Deletions, Purges, and Versions. Without this item, all source folders will be migrated to Recoverable items -> Deletions.
  5. Start migration by selecting only "Mail" items in the "Select what to migrate" section. This will migrate all items. However, the folder type for recoverable items is recognized as a Mail folder by MigrationWiz.
