About Enterprise Vault index locations

Enterprise Vault automatically creates an index for each archive. The size of an index depends on the amount of data that has been indexed and the level of indexing that you choose. Full indexing requires approximately 12% of the space that the original data uses. To store indexes, you must create one or more index locations for Enterprise Vault to use.

See the following article on the Symantec Enterprise Support site for information on how to configure and administer Enterprise Vault indexing, as well as best practices:


Note the following:

  • If you ran the Getting Started Wizard, you have already created some index locations. You can create more index locations as necessary.

  • Antivirus software can potentially change data, so it is important to exclude the index locations in your virus-checking application.
