Have some users that have 12-14GB woth of emails.  Want to archive to free up space on the Exchange server.

Need an estimate on how long it would take to archive that much data?  Just an estimate will do.

thanks

A lot of variables - network speed, number of users performing this archive, other existing network traffic.

I have not done that much. In a good, local, and smooth environment, it would likely take about a half day to do this. I do not think much quicker and it could be longer. Network and server traffic would slow things down.

Start one at 8:00am local time and let it complete. That will tell you how long in your environment. ... Thinkpads_User

That is a lot of data you are archiving and it has to go over the network. I think half a day is a reasonable estimate, but you really have to test one in your own environment.

I do not see many networks running at a 100Mbits with server load and users. So factor that down by 10 (not unreasonable) and that lands back at 4 hours (thereabouts).
