No, that's not possible with EV.

Hi Motih,

When you say 'rehydration of items', are you saying restoring archived emails back to the mailboxes? If so, you could use the Enterprise Vault advanced search, do a search for items archived with a specific size range, create a basket and restore the emails back to the mailboxes:


Of course, you might need to this per user mailbox. You can access the advanced search adding the 'advanced' parameter in the EV search URL, for instance:


I hope this helps.
