Any way to accelerate deletions of archives??
I know it's not officially supported, but there's a lot of discussion about deleting archives in bulk by setting the ArchiveStatus to 4, and letting the Storage service delete the archives.
I have probably 11000 archives which are abandoned, and I have no requirement for compliance, etc, and would like to delete them. I deleted a sample of about 280 archives (identified by SQL query, and by setting the ArchiveStatus to 4) and it is working, but 3 weeks later, I still have 120 archives waiting to be deleted. At this rate, I almost literally will NEVER be able to complete the deletion of 11000 archives.
I'm hoping that someone knows a way to either tell storage service to dedicate more threads, or can tell me how this is being throttled, nad how to speed it up. There doesn't seem to be any bottleneck on network, server, or disk performance, so I have to believe it's a thread related issue.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
