How many of your users use PSTs? How many does each have? And do you know the average size of each PST? If the answer to any of these questions is “I don’t know”, then you’re not along. A recurring theme I hear from our customers is that it was easy enough to get into the situation where PST usage has gotten out of hand, but they have no idea how big the issue has become.
Here’s another question for you –what provisions do you take to ensure this data (confidential, potentially critical data) is backed up? Do you rely on your end users? A quick search via Google for corrupt pst file returns over 500,000 hits, simply put PSTs create major problems and there is very little help in solving those problems. and this is not taking into account general disk problems that can occur with worrying frequency.
Let’s be honest – without help, finding PST data is tough, and when you find it, it’s not easy discovering what type of data is contained within. Isn’t it time you controlled your data before it controls you?
