PST migration time

Am I right in thinking that the following PST file (which was 7Gb) finished its migration process at 23:15, or was the finish time when it failed to reset the read-only status (08:17)?

my understanding

Hello Veera,

The migration of the items from the pst into the archive finished at 23:15
The writing of the shortcuts in the mailbox starts at that time.
The warning at 08:17 means that EV was not able to reset the status of the pst on the clientpc, probably because the users workstation was shutdown. (network path not found)

The results part indicates everything except 12 items were processed. (ie moved into the archive) the 12 not archived items have been moved to the mailbox. I'd call this a succes.

Thanks Gertjan. Further to

Thanks Gertjan. Further to the above:
  1. Why did the Migrator task wait until 08:17 until trying to reset the read-only status on the PST, was this because that's when the backup of the vault store was completed?

  2. Why would 12 items not be archived, I've checked the PST Migration policy and all message classes are ticked?
    Does the statement "items moved to mailbox" mean they were dumped into the Inbox, or merged into the folder structure inline with the Migration policy?
