Quadrotech PST Flight Deck 9.0 - Requirements Guide

For Shortcut Rehydration

PST Flight Deck includes the ability to restore Enterprise Vault shortcuts found within PST files in the upload area prior to the ingestion into a desired target.

The current Enterprise Vault Service Account associated with the shortcuts being restored is required to run the service responsible for any Enterprise Vault related function, including shortcut rehydration. The Enterprise Vault server associated with the shortcuts must be running and able to successfully retrieve the items associated with the shortcuts via API calls to the source server.

The API for the version of Enterprise Vault being retrieved from is also required. This is typically included in the Enterprise Vault installation media (e.g. “X:\Symantec Enterprise Vault\API Runtime\” where “X:\” is the drive letter of the Enterprise Vault installation media). Frequently, customers choose to install the Enterprise Vault Admin Console instead of the API. This is an acceptable and supported configuration.

For Repair

PST Flight Deck includes the ability to identify and repair corrupted PST files where ever possible.

To facilitate this functionality, PST Flight Deck leverages the native repair utility for Outlook. Outlook 2013 x64 or Outlook 2016 x64 is required to be installed on any machine running a Repair module.

Outlook from Office 365 is NOT supported by Repair module.
