  • State the objective aloud.

    10+ Years of PF Usage
    There are a lot of folders….plain and simple.
    Lack of Maintenance
    No one ever tells you they don’t need their folders anymore. Most have chosen to just throw more storage at the problem because of the lack of insight needed to actually proactively maintain the environment.
    Data Governance & Compliance Regulations
    With Data Breach & Leakage events on the rise, Public Folders have come under greater scrutiny as a largely unstructured repository of data.
    Years of Mergers, Acquisitions, Migrations & Upgrades
    The metadata on the folders has gone bad due to these scenarios. Simply ingesting one Public Folder environment into another will modify critical pieces of info such as Last Modified Dates, Creation Dates, and Last Access Times (in addition to other organizational processes such as backups)
    Critical Business Processes
    The use of such components as organizational forms add another layer of complexity to the equation whereby disabling or deleting Public Folders blindly could cause productivity issues and other problems.
