  • Convert job to full (Running an Exchange Mailbox Agent Archiving Job)
    Posted: 03-11-2020, 12:40 AM


    The "Convert job to full" option for the Exchange Mailbox Agent (new, non-classic) archiving has been around since SP17.  Given that this iDataAgent is an Incremental Forever technology, and that even there is no such thing as a Full or Synthetic Full - what is actually happening here?  Does "Convert the job to full" re-download all the emails then re-copy the emails into storage, or is it a new technology to help Selective Copies (e.g. Tape)?
