gromox-pff2mt(8gx) — Utility for analysis of PFF/PST/OST files


gromox-pff2mt [-pst]input.pst


gromox-pff2mt reads a file that conforms to the Personal Folder File (PFF) and the Offline Folder File (OFF) format and re-exports the data in a Gromox-specific mailbox transfer format to stdout for consumption by pipe by the gromox-mt2exm(8gx) program. Optionally, pff2mt can print a tree summary of the PFF. The PFF format is used in several file types:

  • PAB (Personal Address Book)

  • PST (Personal Storage Table)

  • OST (Offline Storage Table)

By default, pff2mt creates a new folder “Import of <xyz.pst> on <date>” within IPM_SUBTREE (“Top of Information Store”) and places all PFF objects into that new subfolder.



Show properties in detail (enhances -t).


Splice objects from the PFF into existing folders. Specifically, the PFF root is mapped to the store root, and special folders (Sent Items, Deleted Items, etc.) are mapped to special folders in the store if the PFF has the necessary information.


Show a diagnostic tree view of the source data as it is being read.
