Salient Features

The most exclusive features integrated into the Exchange Backup & Restore tool are described here.

Backup Multiple Exchange Mailboxes to PST

Backup Multiple Exchange Mailboxes to PST Brick-level backup is easy for Exchange administrators now. They can use our tool to back up multiple mailboxes at a time. And the backup process completes in just four steps – select the source, select filters, select the destination, and back up. And each mailbox is saved to a separate PST file at the specified location.

Backup Multiple Archive Mailboxes to PST

Backup Multiple Archive Mailboxes to PST Just like primary user mailboxes, you can backup archive mailboxes too. When archiving is enabled for a user mailbox, our solution automatically displays the archive mailbox in the software console so that you can select it for backup. And with administrative rights, you can backup archive mailboxes of multiple users too.

Backup Shared mailboxes to PST

Backup Shared mailboxes to PST Our tool saves even shared mailboxes (accessible to multiple users with different permissions) to PST. To back up, the Exchange account should have a shared mailbox associated with it. In this way, you can back up Office 365 shared mailboxes as well.

Save Public Folder data to PST

Save Public Folder data to PST With this tool, you can save public folder data directly to PST. The tool backs up messages, Calendar items, Journal entries, Contacts, etc. You can backup legacy as well as modern public folders – no matter whether they are in a mailbox database or public folder database.

Restores healthy PST files to Exchange

Restores healthy PST files to Exchange You can import (restore) a PST file back to Exchange with our tool. Just browse for the PST files, provide the Exchange credentials, filter the data, and migrate. The filters are same for both the backup and restore processes.

Restore user mailboxes from Exchange OST files

Restore user mailboxes from Exchange OST files The tool also provides the facility to restore offline storage (OST) files to Exchange. So, if you have some missing, deleted, or disconnected mailboxes, you can restore them from the OST files on the user systems.

Use CSV file to add multiple mailboxes

Use CSV file to add multiple mailboxes If you have many mailboxes for backup, then you can use a CSV file for convenience. You can download a sample CSV file from the software, input the source & destination details, and then import it to the tool. So this is the best tool to backup multiple mailboxes.

Filters to backup only the desired data

Filters to backup only the desired data The advanced filters of the tool make it easy for you to back up the data as per your needs. You can include or exclude the mailbox folders (Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, etc.), select item types (Email, Journal, Task, Contacts, Calendar/Appointment), and filter the mailbox items by a date range.

Skip Deleted Items folder & empty folders

Skip Deleted Items folder & empty folders The tool allows you skip the Deleted Items folder and empty folders from the backup. This option is convenient when you have a large number of empty folders in mailboxes.

Run multiple instances of tool simultaneously

Run multiple instances of tool simultaneously If a backup process is going on, and you want to either backup or restore some other data, then you can run another instance of the tool. Another instance will run independent of the first one and will not interfere with it in anyway.

Incremental backup

Incremental backup If you do Exchange backups regularly, the Incremental backup feature of the tool helps you save time, effort, and storage space. With this feature, you can skip the previously backed up data from the backup or import process.

Reports in a CSV file

Reports in a CSV file After completing the backup or restore, the tool displays the details of the process. You can save these details to a CSV file too. The report will have the details of mailboxes, backup destination, and status of the backup/restore.

The software protects the mailbox data during the connection as it copies the data without any entrance inside the Server. It asks for account’s credentials (Exchange server name or IP address, email address, and password) and lists the mailboxes for backup. The following are the steps to run the process.
  1. In the home screen of the software, click Backup.
  2. Click on Add button to login to the Exchange account.
  3. Use your account's credentials like Exchange Server name/IP address, mailbox login ID, and Password. Make the selection for either single or multiple mailboxes.
  4. After verifying the legalities of your account, the software will connect with mailboxes.
  5. Choose if you want to save Mailbox, Archive Mailbox, and Public Folder.
  6. Apply various kinds of filters on the Exchange data to select the necessary part of mailboxes to backup Exchange Server only.
  7. Select the folder location where you want to save the backup file.
  8. After saving the mailbox data in PST format, the successful message will appear showing the status. Kernel Exchange Backup tool will save the PST file in the selected folder. Click OK.
  9. Save the report in CSV format, then click OK.
Yes, the CSV files are used to store tabular data, and our tool uses it for the automated backup of multiple mailboxes. It provides a pre-designed CSV file for you. Here are the steps for using a CSV file for multiple mailbox backup.
  1. Download the sample CSV file from the software.
  2. Fill all the columns of CSV file by inputting the details of source and destination.
  3. Import the same CSV file back to the software and continue with the backup process.
For Office 365 login, the tool provides a Modern Authentication option in addition to Basic Authentication. It helps you add the Office 365 account easily and effortlessly using Tenant ID, Client ID, & Client Secret.
Please, note the following points:–
  1. The Exchange account should be active.
  2. To migrate multiple mailboxes, the account you are using should have full access rights over the mailboxes. If you don’t have, you can grant the full access rights to the mailbox.
  3. While restoring (importing), the PST files should be healthy. If your PST files are corrupt, you need to repair them first.
The tool creates a separate PST file for each Exchange mailbox.
Yes. There is an option in the filter page of the tool to skip all the empty folders from the backup.
No, you do not need to have an active Outlook application to create the PST file while taking the backup. But, if you want to use the PST file, then you should have the Outlook for it.
No, you do not need to have your Exchange credentials to access the PST file.
