DOR (Delete On Recall) vs SQL Crawler - Enterprise Vault FSA
One of the things I loved about Enterprise Vault FSA was that it was a versatile tool that could be used for Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM). Sadly the DOR feature was taken away which has left us with an obsolete product for our purposes. Since this feature had the potential to cause data loss and it was too difficult to find a savvy workaround (assumption) I would like to propose an idea that is likely in the back of everyone's mind.
If the Symantec team could come up with a tool for those of us who cannot use storage expiry that can crawl the SQL database and do a comparison of what is in the archive and if the item has a placeholder I think many customers would be VERY happy. We have several TB of data just sitting in the archive that users are unaware of and need to be removed. If a tool cannot be produced that does some type of back-end file removal then we will have to migrate to a new product. This would obviously be a nightmare but necessary since our archive is in a continually growing and extremely inefficient state.
