    The gradual hardening of Macro attack surface in office is, like anything else, increasing the price to enter so people are looking elsewhere.

    With the upcoming macro sandboxing along with all the research in the area I see a lot of pivoting off that attack surface to other softer (and easier) targets.

    Apparently having a multiple entities/companies with their own abn, branding, bank details and commercial real estate is too difficult for some property management software developers.

    We can't afford custom SAP/Oracle/Azure database setup.

    Product managers and developers with NFI developing business requirements, I bet it doesn't cater for entity ownership transfer so email address that signs up owns the entity as well... lol
    Could continue with address and phone reference, but you know NoSQL for the win because relational data is a thing of the past. ;)

    Importing PST's into gmail using bittitan. Requires you create a blob in azure, upload the pst, then let bittitan suck it from there. Tool to upload to azure requires PSTs be no larger than 10gb. What size PST does the discovery hold spit out? 10.1gb. Someone at microsoft is having a good old laugh.

    Not sure. Documentation on it says to do it a certain way, so following that doco.

    https://help.bittitan.com/hc/en-us/...rage-Table-pst-to-Office-365-Migration-Guide-

    Important: Each PST file that will be migrated must be equal to or less than 10GB. PST files that are larger than 10GB must be divided into separate files that are each smaller than the 10GB limit; otherwise, the migration will fail.

    Looks like there's an advanced option to set the max size of PSTs

    No one will ever need more then 10GB for a PST file.

    Maybe, they got confused after reading about 10GB token ring lossless wireless on this forum, and now have a mental tick on 10GB.

    10GB of data, all siloed away, useless to any decently integrated system.

    Fuck yeah, email and spreadsheets. "Because our users are too stupid for real tools".

    The thing is, we all know that PST files, like the Inbox, are the latest in document management technology. The Deleted Items part of your Inbox is where you should be filing your Vital Records.

    Correct. They'll never need any of this. What they need and what they've demanded are two different things though. They wanted *all* email from the previous manager they replaced. That was 56gb of email from a 7yr period. We managed to talk them down to 2yrs worth, which is still 26gb of email.


    Edit: And just for clarity here, the only reason we're talking about PSTs here is because that is what o365 gives you when you export email to transfer it somewhere else. Otherwise this would all be sitting up there in cloudy land happily taking up m$s space.

    EvilGenius I can understand 7yrs as that is tax liability period, but only if there is an issue to sort.

    7yrs just happened to be how long the previous manager worked here, and how long the litigation hold lasts. Just a coincidence. If they'd worked here for 30yrs, that's how much email this manager wanted. When I say *all* I mean fucking everything.

    LOL hope new manager isn't your new manager, sounds like a controlling wanker.

    I don't delete emails unless from vendors\spam etc.

    I file everything and a couple of times it has saved my ass by people claiming I never said X and I pop out the email and hey presto now they remember.

    I raise you 150GB PST's. Stupid body corporate firms and their intention to run the entire business through email.

    "Oh it's slow and not working well"

    No shit. If i did my business in your toilet and used too much paper and it blocks who's fault is it?
