Hi there Experts,

I've recently migrated from Exchange 2008 to Exchange 2013 (New server, domain, etc).
To move public folders and mailboxes, I exported mailboxes to PST.  Then imported the PST files back to their respective 2013 mailboxes.

Users are indicating that many of their calendar items show "Copy:" I'm not sure if there are any serious issues at this time, but I'd like to take any proactive action if I need to.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Real-Timer

FYI, there's no Exchange 2008. Do you mean Exchange 2007? How did you Export the PSTs? Through Outlook? If so, then you essentially created a copy of every calendar event and placed it into the PST. The PST export tools available in the Exchange Management Console for 2007 is much better at handling this stuff. Also you could have directly moved the mailboxes to Exchange 2010 rather than exporting and importing, but that's not really possible anymore. Just an FYI.

At any rate, http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/calendar/copy-is-prefixed-meeting-subject/ has a script you can use to remove the Copy: portion from the meeting subject lines.
