FSA Vault Partitions increasing size close to 2TB maximum
I am having problems with extracting files from old archives becuase the archives increase in size when I extract the files. I presume this is becuase the data will be in CAB files and pulling it back expands the CAB file using more space,
I already have one vault store partition that is sitting on 1.9TB and I need to extract more files.
I am in the awkward position of needing to move all the users files from one server to another server.
I cannot use the -m or -pm features of FSAUtility as the users in their wisdom have moved archived file placeholders from their original directory to a new directory and FSAUtility cannot find them in the archive.
So my only choice is to unarchive each users folders to the new server fsautility -t . As stated above this is causing closed partitions to increase in size. I close each parition with what I though was sufficient free disk to cope with normal changes in the partition but did not count on having to move this amount of files.
I am re-running the Collections routine on the partitions at the moment in the hope that it will decrease the size so that I can continue extracting and moving users.
Does anyone know if I create a mount point in the partition folder to get more space so I can continue to extract files using FSAUtility and not have EVA shut down becuase of lack of free space.
Or am I missing something elsewhere
