How to restrict access to Enterprise Vault for user's own Mailbox?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

How do I restrict a user from his own Enterprise Vault and create a new one for him? 

This is for ringfencing purposes. The user will be transferring to a different department and needs his EV access removed but not deleted. His manager should have access to his old archive and a new one created for the user.

I can't seem to remove the inherited permissions from Exchange and I am not sure if zapping would help.

Anyone have an idea? I don't want to mess up the user's account so I am prepared to do this first on a test account.

from the EV console go to archives, exchange mailbox, and double click on the user's archive. on the permissions tab add a deny.

So it is a combo of the above answers. 

I would first add and Administrative note on the current archive.  Next, you should zap the user and then enable him and choose to create a new archive.

Then on the archive you created the Admin note on I would change to name to like User-Old and deny the permissions for the user.

Thanks everyone for your reply!

It turns out that our organization does not permit or support such a change and would prefer to create a new mailbox in exchange rather than tweaking EV.

I appreciate your responses and the solutions you provided most notably that of Tony and I'm glad to be a part of this forum because it is very helpful to me.
