Vault Cache folder size
This may be a something basic and might not be a problem as such, but I cannot find the info anywhere in this forum and I hope someone can anwer the question for me.
Some basic background info. We have around 1200 users, some with pretty large mail archives (e.g. 120GB). Most users are set for a maximum Vault Cache size of 1GB, a handful are configured to have 10GB maximum Vault Cache's and another few users have been configured to use Virtual Vault.
We have EV Server 8.0 SP4 and the client we use is 9.0.1193. Machines are a mixture of Win7 Professional (32 bit) and XP (I know, don't laugh!). The EV server isn't under any real strain and has plenty of free CPU, Memory and disk space.
My question is with regards to the actual size of those users with the 1GB or 10GB Vault Cache and I'll give an example of where I am getting a touch confused.
- User has 4GB of cached mail
- User has the Desktop Policy set to give them a Maximum 1GB Vault Cache
- The EV folder on the user's PC (KVS\Enterprise Vault\1EF14.......) is only around 750MB in total
- Folder consists of a 225MB .mdb file and around 525MB in seven .db files as well as a few of the standard .ini and .xml files
- The user has been logging on/off the same PC for over 1 month so the archive hasn't been created recently
I assume the Maximum Cache size of 1GB includes the .mdc file but my question is this..... What about the remaining 250MB that hasn't been utilised?
If the user's archive is around 4GB and the Desktop policy is set for a 1GB maximum cache size the they should have around 750MB of .db files assuming the .mdc stays the same size?
I may be missing something here, but this is a similar case for many if not all of our users. I was wondering if there is a reasonable explanation for this.
