If you used exmerge, it would already have done the validation to ensure that the copy is the same as the contents of PF.  

In addition to that, there would have been a log of the operation and any failures that occurred in c:\exmerge.log.

im not using exmerge... I manually move the item to the PF. is due to some issue with the access after i dragged the folder from Putlook PST to Exchange PF..

In that case, if there were any errors copying over PF items from PST back to PF - it would also have been reported in Outlook and affected items left behind.  

If there were any major errors during the copy, these would also appear in the application log on the Exchange box.  



ps
Exmerge can only do mailbox import-export, my bad.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

during the copy there is no error... just end user requested to have a report..

You can use pfdavadmin to look at the PF content information and compare between two different folders - number of items and size, for example.

But afaik, there is no tool to compare PST contents to PF contents.  

If you had increased diagnostics logging on the PF store to maximum before doing the copy - all additions to PF would have been reported in the application log but even then, you would have to manually compare that to the contents from the PST.

So it looks like you're out of luck on this one, sorry.

The last thing I can suggest is record the number of items in the PST via Outlook (select the PST and look at number of items in the Outlook information bar at the bottom) and compare that to the number of items in the PF (select in Outlook and check number of items or use pfdavadmin to get the PF info).
