Create a share folder on the server and grant Exchange Trusted Subsystem read/write permission. In this example, we are using a share called ExchangePST that is referring to C:\ExchangePST folder. See the image on the right and click to enlarge.
This folder is used to store exported PST files from Exchange server.

- Type the following command.
New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role "Mailbox Import Export" -User YourActiveDirectoryDomain\Administrator
Change the machine and user/group name appropriately in the above command.
- Close Exchange Management Shell by typing the Exit command.
Change the user account that will run backups using the following steps:
- Open Services from Control Panel
- Locate a service called Backup Monitoring Service, double click it to invoke the properties window.
- Click the Log On tab and switch the account to Administrator. See image below
Now you are ready to configure Syncrify Client.
