  • Question

  • Does anyone know how to delete duplicate files in Exchange 2016? Originally the files were in Zimbra but the company switched over to Exchange 2016.

  • I assume you are speaking of duplicate messages?  if so how was the information migrated from zimbra into Exchange?  Each message should have a Search Key and modified time.  If they match they are truly duplicate and if not they may be versions of the same item.   Our DigiScope tool in DEMO mode can help you find this information and also remove duplicates, other option would be to use something like MFCMAPI to view the information and then manually delete the duplicates or if you have development skills use EWS to find and remove duplicates
