Using parition collector for closed partitions

Hello,

 

We wanted to collect files in a closed partion. We have 800 GB arcvhived data in this partition and after closing the partition we enabled the collection files option to make the backups faster. we planned to collect files older than 1 year in to 99 MB CAB files, after 30 minutes later we got a log which says

 

0 Saveset(s) were collected into 0 Collection(s).
The run completed in 0 hour(s), 25 minute(s), 35 second(s).

 

Why it did not collect any files, does this option needs to be set before archiving, doesn't it work for closed partitions. how can we collect files in the closed partition.

 

Best Regards,

Usuph.

  • Hi,

     

    Yes, the collector works on closed partition.  

     

    Basic question, do you have savesets that are older than a year?  Not emails older than a year, but files that were created over a year ago.

  • Hi Tony,

     

    Thank you very much for your reply. I see, while it collect the files, it doesn't look to the mail date, the archiving date of data on disk is important for us.

     

    Our data is 775 GB and our disk size is 800 GB we have only 25 GB free space on this partition, can we start the collectin files option on this partion, can the low disk space make problem for us. Is 25 GB free disk space can enough for us for the collection.
