Attention

Starting May 1st, 2018, we will no longer offer the ArchiveOne family of products. This includes all editions of ArchiveOne, ArchiveOne for Files, Max Compression, and Access Security Manager. If you currently hold a maintenance and support contract, you will continue to receive our award-winning support until your contract expires, or until May 1st, 2019, whichever occurs first. The license for ArchiveOne is perpetual; therefore the software may continue to be used independently without any updates or support indefinitely.

  2. Right-click Policies, and click New Policy:

  4. Use the Criteria page to select items to list. Select individual items, or clear all criteria to search all items. Click Next.

    select_repos.png

  9. Click OK to close the dialog box, and then click Finish.
  10. To run the policy, right-click the policy, and click Start Now.

Verify Data Archive

To verify items have been archived:

  1. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the directory containing the original files.
  2. Right-click on a file and click Properties. For example:
    archive_properties.png 

In this example, the Size of the file is reported as 2.18 MB while the Size On Disk is reported as 512 bytes confirming that the file has been archived. If a user opens this file, ArchiveOne for Files retrieves it from the repository and presents it to the user in the normal manner.

 

Continue with  ArchiveOne for Files Search and Retrieval.
