    1. Action for duplicates:  You can choose to;
      1. DELETE Items and you MAY be able recover the items post deletion, however there is no guarantee.
      2. PURGE Items and you will NOT be able to recover the items post purge (unless you have litigation hold enabled).
    2. Export To: Before Items are Deleted/Purged you can choose to Export a copy to PST.
      1. We highly recommend that you use the Export to PST option since it allows you a rollback method if desired.  Once you validate the results you can easily delete the PST file.
    3. Deduplication Scope:  Allows you to only Include OR Exclude specific folders/subfolders from the Delete/Purge actions.

 

  1. Click OK to execute the deduplication
    1. If you elected to Export items before the deletion/purging of items you will be presented with the Export to PST options
