migrate PST files to Office 365

In this tutorial, we will teach you how to detect duplicated items available in the Outlook Data File while migrating PST files to Office 365 mailbox. Also, you will find an alternative solution, when Microsoft Office 365 PST driving shipping method gets failed.

First of all, remove duplicates from your Outlook PST file with Outlook Duplicate Remover. This tool just does not detect the duplicates available in the PST file, but also remove replicated items across different Outlook Data Files. Once you dedupe the duplicated entries from Outlook, you can jump on to next section.

Step 1: Migrate PST to Office 365 Via Enabling Admin Role for a User:

You have to enable mailbox Import and Export Admin Role for a user to migrate Outlook PST files to Office 365 account.

  1. Go to Office 365 admin panel and afterwards choose “Exchange”.
  2. Now, you are in “Exchange Admin Center”. Move to “Permissions” and afterward choose “Compliance Management”.
  3. Hit on Plus sign in order to add a new “Role Group”. Also, assign a name and description to the role group.
  4. Now, you need to add that “Role” using plus button and present above the “Roles” list.
  5. Go to “Select a Role” dialog box, select “Mailbox Import Export”, choose “Add” next and finally hit on “Ok”.
  6. At the end, select a user by hitting on “Plus” button given just above the “Members” list,whom you want to assign this role. You can find these options only in the “New Role Group”.

See, a user can migrate PST files to Office 365 mailbox by two ways:

  1. By Office 365 PST Drive Shipping: If you want to migrate multiple PST files to Office 365 online manually, then you can go with Drive shipping method.
  2. By Office 365 Network Upload Tool: This is also an another manual solution to upload PST files to Office 365 account. It is prefer to migrate small amount of PST file to O365.

However, defining both of them can be comprehensive and time consuming, and with the same concern, I am only going to define the first way i,e; Drive Shipping method to migrate PST files to Office 365 mailbox manually.
