With the emergence of Office 365 as a superior email communication platform, many organizations have started switching over to it.  After migrating to Office 365, sometimes users, as well as organizations, will have to import PST files to Office 365 for various reasons. There are manual methods as well as professional tools available for importing PST files to Office 365. Here, I will show how you can quickly import PST files to Office 365 without losing data. We have two methods for the same:

  1. Network Upload Method
  2. Kernel Import PST to Office 365

Network Upload Method

Network Upload method is a manual way to import PST files to Office 365 mailboxes. You can use this method when you have good technical knowledge. The steps are:

  1. Download & install AzureAzcopy and copy SAS URL: Initially, you have to download and install the AzureAzcopy tool. For this, you have to log in to your organization’s Office 365 account using administrator credentials.  You have to choose either you want to upload your data, or you want to ship it physically.
  2. Upload PST files to Office 365: Now you can run the AzureAzcopy tool. Make sure that your PST file is located on a file share or file server in your organization.
  3. Preview your uploaded PST files: This is an optional step. If you are going to view your uploaded PST files, then you have to download and install Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer. Using it, you can preview the PST files.
  4. Map your PST file to Office 365 mailboxes: Once the PST files are successfully uploaded to the cloud storage, the next thing you have to do is to create CSV file. This CSV (a sample can be downloaded) maps PST files with Office 365 mailboxes.
  5. Create a job to import PST files: Now create a job that can import PST to Office 365. In this step, you can use the CSV mapping file you have created in the previous step.
  6. Set filters and start your import job: Once you have created the job, Office 365 analyzes data and allows to set filters on data before importing it to Office 365. Apply filters as per your need and then start your import job.

Disadvantages of Network Upload Method

The Network Upload method is very complicated, and it requires much technical knowledge. So, it is not reliable for non-technical users. And there are chances of data loss. To overcome all these issues, you should use a third-party tool.
