The input PST files must be available on AFS before you call the function. To upload a PST file to AFS, use the \afs -put command in ACT. For example, to copy all PST files in the current directory on your Queen to the /test/ directory on AFS, use this command:

\afs -put *.pst /test/

If AFS does not have the specified directory, the command creates the directory before copying the files to it.

Here are more examples for uploading PST files to AFS:

\afs -put /home/beehive/*.pst /test/subdir1/
\afs -put /home/beehive/test1.pst /test/subdir2/
\afs -put /home/beehive/test3.pst /test/subdir3/file1.pst

The third example stores the file test3.pst as file1.pst in AFS.
