File Server Arching Policy advice

Created: 25 Sep 2013 • Updated: 30 Sep 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have a file server archiving policy that archives items (for certain file types) that are older than a year.

Archive point is \\peace\staffshare

I have been asked to archive items in a sub folder of this share with a different policy (ie archive items older than 1 month)

The policy against \\peace\staffshare is a volume policy, so can I then configure a folder policy against what I want to exclude?

 

I am using the following as a resource:

Yes thats correct, Folder policy can be used to override the Volume policy of parent folder.

Hi,

You can configure option "Ignore volume rules for this folder" in the Folder Properties inside the Target section in Vault Admin Console.

Hi Ajay, thanks for asking - actually there is something else. I've setup and configured as I've been advised, I'm performing a RunNow in report mode to test its working as required. Many thanks for your help - I will remember to update this thread as soon as I have it working 100%
