Active Folders Content Manager now offers PST discovery, assessment and action.
Reading UK: 20th May 2003 - C2C Systems, the developer of management utilities for Exchange, now provides centralized control over .pst files, or Personal Storage Folders and their contents via Active Folders Content Manager, v.4. Active Folders is the only product that can combine searching of server-based and local PSTs, making it easy to discover and search email that has been inadvertently or deliberately concealed from the system administrator, even on a laptop.

PSTs are a common way to manage mailbox size in Exchange, but are now widely recognised as presenting difficulties for administrators, as well as legal risks. Users can set PSTs up anywhere, and they frequently corrupt data at a critical 2Gb limit. PSTs' decentralised format presents an inherent risk in being unable to track and control email content. Many organisations are subject to email retention and deletion policies and may be required to find an email quickly, sometimes for legal reasons.

The addition of PST capability to Active Folders Content Manager in v.4.0 now uniquely provides the complete capability to discover, assess and take action on all Exchange email; in public folders, private mailboxes and now personal (PST) folders.

Dave Hunt, CEO of C2C Systems said "More than half the PST user companies we've spoken to, state that they cannot envisage removing the dependency on them in the next two years, so a simple removal process is unrealistic. C2C's approach allows an organisation to reduce its litigation risk without imposing impractical changes to its systems. What's more, Active Folders will find PSTs whether they are on network accessible drive locations or concealed in a local filestore. The result is reduced corporate risk and greater management awareness."
