Barracuda Backup -> forensically sound emailbox extraction

Hi,

Has anybody a suggestion to export a user e-mail box from within Barracuda Backup (Cloud) to a proper image file, without tempering date/time? The only option seems a directory structure with eml e-mail files.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Be careful to make sure the EML exports include attachments as well as the emails themselves.

Thanks, but I was looking for an image/ pst export, not an extraction of e-mails in separate eml files.

Barracuda stores archived emails within database tables and may or may not have been configured to also archive email attachments.

Barracuda typically does not OCR content as it is ingested to its databases so I strongly recommend not using the Barracuda software itself to perform any date range nor key word filtering.

You can screen shot the export steps you are taking using Baracuda as a collection report.

The Baracuda exported EML or PST files (if it can export PST files) will have a creation date of today’s date, but the email internal critical metadata such as email sent date will be unchanged from the original email’s metadata dates.

You would definitely need a licensed version of Outlook on the Baracuda box itself in order to generate PST format exports (if that is even a Baracuda export option).

You can always use Aid4Mail Forensic Edition to convert the export EML files to PST format if you must have PST files.
