Question on Compression
Hi all, hoping somebody might be able to shed some light here.
I'm basically wondering how the compression works on Enterprise Vault. I'm looking to use this solution to 1) save space on Exchange server and 2) take away the PST nightmare. However, on trial run I've noticed that the space saved by mailboxes is more than made up for by the space taken by EV storage.
As an example, I archived a portion of one of our development mailboxes. While I managed to shave 112MB from the total mailbox size, the drive with EVStorage located on expanded by 276MB.
Obviously as this is only a trial run, I am going with mostly default so have no idea whether I'm getting the best out of this setup. However I would like to get to the bottom of how this works, as so far this isn't going to get to purchase stage as I won't be saving any disk space, infact I'll be needing more!
Thanks in advance.
