How to completely remove all installation files
Be aware, that despite following the procedure above, some CodeTwo Exchange Migration files will remain on your drive. Those are some settings, configuration, cache and log files located in the below listed folders. Feel free to manually delete them if you are required to uninstall the software completely. However, we strongly recommend to reconsider such decision and to keep those files intact in their original locations, in the case you ever want to install CodeTwo Exchange Migration again. If you wish to back your settings up in a different location or move installation to another machine, please consult our Knowledge Base article on Moving migration software settings to a different machine.
It will not be possible to restore your original settings without those files in the future. Also, if you delete the software's cache files, install CodeTwo Exchange Migration again and go for identical migration scenario as previously, you might experience problems with some mailbox items getting duplicated.
