How to limit access to archived files

Hi Guys,

We are a potential customer who is looking for FSA functionality which will allow us to control access to files which have been archived to the vault.

We want users to be able to see the stubs / shortcuts, but not be able to recall files. The recall function must only work for a specific AD group and no one else. This is a regulatory requirment.

We would also like to understand if there is any way to customize a message to the user when they attempt to recall a file if the above access is denied rather than see the general windows "Access Denied" message.

Seems like a bizarre requirement and I don't think it can be done.

Only thing I can think of is to mess around with SynchroniseFSASharePermissions and set permissions directly on the archives for AD Group.

There would be no way to customize the message.

I don't think that there is a way to do it :(
