Bulk Recall retrieve all vaulted data for a particular FSA

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a requirement for retrieve all vaulted data for a particular FSA. Obviously I have used the script below

select av.ArchiveName, sum (sp.OriginalSize)/1024/1024 'Original_Size(MB)' from Saveset ss 
inner join  SavesetProperty sp on sp.SavesetIdentity = ss.SavesetIdentity 
inner join ArchivePoint ap on ap.ArchivePointIdentity = ss.ArchivePointIdentity 
inner join EnterpriseVaultDirectory.dbo.ArchiveView av on av.VaultEntryId = ap.ArchivePointId 
WHERE AV.Type = 129 ---ONLY FOR FSA, for all, comment this line 
group by av.ArchiveName

Was able to see the amount of space needed on my FSA to begin the retrieval

I was going to use the FSAUtility  -b –s “UNCPath” –recurse

Question: is there another way this can be done like removing the excluded exe and allow AV or backup software to do the recall ????

The -b option will only recall what is a placeholder on the file server.  If users have deleted the PH file then the item will not be recalled from the archive.  The -t(restore) option would need to be used if you require ALL data from the archive.
