Many people loved the change in Enterprise Vault which took place several versions ago where you can elect to have quota based archiving as well as age based archiving. Some people simply turned it on, but, for me, I take a bit more time to consider things. So what are the pros and cons of quota based archiving?
- Makes maximum impact, up front, on the size of the mailbox.
Obviously if you have got 1000 small items in the inbox totally 2 Mb, and one 34 Mb item in the mailbox, archiving that 34 Mb item is going to have the biggest impact in freeing up space.
- Can stop users receiving the over quota messages.
All users love to hate the message, and so the more often that you can NOT send it to them, the happier your life might be.
