Exporting Search Results in Compliance Search

Updated

You can export the search results from Compliance Search. Exporting search results automatically creates an export set. Compliance Officers and attorneys can use export sets to deliver data in convenient and useful formats.

You can export data using the following file formats:

  • PST (Portable Storage Table) available when the search results only include email messages

  • CAB (cabinet file) available when the search results include files, emails, and a combination of files and email messages
