How To: Discover PST Files on a Computer
Creating a job to discover PST files located on a computer is syntactically a very simple but powerful command.
New-SmJob -Source Discovery -SourceInput ComputerName -BatchId 1 -Tags "PST Discovery"
Lets go through what we just did and break it down.
- Source – Here we have specified Discovery, indicating that we wish to discover files.
- SourceInput – This is either the path to a share, a drive or just a computer name. If a computer name is specified, a call is made requesting all fixed drives on the computer and all drives are scanned.
- BatchId – This tells the job to which batch it belongs.
- Tags – You can give your jobs nice tags so they are easier to group in the Management User Interface.
