For the admin audit log data collection, the PowerShell script saves the checkpoint (date) when this data was previously collected. Saving this checkpoint creates and uses splunk-msexchange-auditfile.clixml and splunk-msexchange-mailboxauditlogs.clixml, which uses %TEMP% as a location and C:\Windows\Temp as a path for the NT Authority\SYSTEM account.
