Recovery Manager for Exchange

Recovery Manager for Exchange replaces the PST Import Wizard tool that was previously included in Download Tools.

Archive Manager includes a free license for Recovery Manager for Exchange (RME). RME is the recommended tool for importing PSTs. RME allows you to find and retrieve message-level data from multiple sources in minutes, from a single console.

You can find exactly what you need with intelligent search based on sender, recipient, date, attachment type, subject, message keyword, attachment keyword, message class, message type, or even advanced pattern searching and other custom queries. You can also compare the contents of an online mailbox with a backup mailbox to identify any differences.

Use the following procedures to obtain an Archive Manager compatible RME license and to install RME.

Offline Client

The Archive Manager Offline Client allows stubbed messages to be reconstructed while offline. It does not provide the ability to search the entire email archive, and does not work in a pure Office 365 environment.


Archive Manager requires updating all Offline Client versions to the current version.

The prerequisites software will be installed automatically if Setup.exe is run without them installed on the system.
