Using Enterprise Vault for File System Archiving is something that I still sometimes get involved in, in my post Symantec career. It doesn't crop up all that often, and, most times I get involved I learn something new. Something that cropped up on the Symantec Connect Forums a few days ago is something that I saw on one of my environments a few weeks ago.
The issue relates to results when performing a search.
I still use a rough old Windows XP workstation to do most of my testing on, since it is pretty quick in a Virtual Machine. So I hit an issue where I was searching for a file that I knew was archived, but no results were coming back when I searched based on the name of the file.
