Indexing file

Created: 08 May 2006 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 4 comments


The archived files are saved as .dav/.cab on the vault store NTFS partition.
By what names the index files are stored? what is their extension names.
By what names the shopping files are stored? what is their extension names.
Can we use Database (SQL server) for storing this info or does it need to a file on NTFS?

Look at the propeties of your index service and your shopping service. Find the index location and shopping location. Those 2 locations will contain your index files and shopping files.

Each archive that you have will have it's own index folder in the index location. The index folder will match the ArchiveID of each archive. You can find the archive id if you go into the properties of your archive and click on the Advanced tab. The files you will find are DAT_A, DAT_B etc...etc....

For you shopping files, look in the shopping location and you will find a folder for your Login Domain and underneath that every user who uses a shopping basket will have their own individual folder and it will match their Windows Login name. The shopping basket files will end in a .BSK extension.

No, you can not use SQL to store the indexing information.

This doesn't sound like a question from someone who has the product installed.
Who/what are you?

just wanted to know can the Indexing and shopping info can be stored in SQL as Vault dir db and vault store db & didn't find anything silly with my query.

are you talking about the locations for indexing and shopping or the actual data itself?
