Apprasing OST file for restricted data (as different from PPI data).
This includes initial migration to open, non-proprietary mbox format. The first step is to obtain a PST file from an OST file. Migration to non-proprietary format - a single-platform solution is fine, since this is an occasional use case. Capture the metadata about the conversion process that could be later incorporated into PREMIS event records. Output log file details the tool specifics. Enable parsing of the messages within an OST file so that the data can be searched for restricted data (using case-specific key words). This issue includes several steps and the solutions listed below address beginning tasks in the workflow that would achieve the total solution. The Solution approaches listed below are other approaches that might also assist with parts of the solution set for this issue.
