migrating DV* files to cheaper storage
Is collection and migrations the only\best way to move files to cheaper storage?
I want to create a tiered storage layer whereby archived email messages that are over 2 years old are moved to EV secondary (slower) storage as opposed to the faster storage where the more recently archived items reside. Is the only way to do this by first collecting the files into CAB files and then migrating to the new location?
I assume I just can't migrate without running a collection first? As I'm doing this to benefit from a cheaper storage tier and not to improve backup speeds I don't really need the cabinet files created just need to migrate the files as they are - hope that makes sense
What is the recommended size of the cab files and what is the downside to increasing the size from the default 10MB.... My main concern is that I don't want to have a user experience of over 1 min in opening an item that is in been migrated and I'm not too sure on what the process that EV needs to go through to recall an item.... does it just extract the required item or does the entire cabinet file get restored back to the vault store partition? - hence why 10MB files are the default to minimise the delays to the user.
Many Thanks as always
