Archive Sizing beyond 16GB

I have several user archives that have grown larger than 16GB. What are the dangers to large archive sizes like this, if any.

My company is currently in Litigation hold so a no delete policy is currently set on the EV Vault store.

16GB is not an issue but you should set your vaults to roll over to keep them at a manageable size

When you hit vaults of 150GB then they can become troublesome for backups and when you need to move the location of a vault to balance the space being used larger vaults do make it more difficult to complete

none really, just make sure

none really, just make sure you have good backups of their indexes cos rebuilding will take longer than the normal indexes
plus the indexes for them are going to roll over sooner or later (if it hasnt already) then they will see a bit different results to people in their Search browser than other people see

but really theres nothing wrong with an archive that large

Forget the rollover part my brain is not firing correctly today. Don't worry about the size of your vaults they are good and until they get really big you need not worry about them. The larger they get the harder it is for you to move them if you ever need to in the future to larger storage but for now you are OK

This is true. It comes down

This is true. It comes down to manageability of the size of data stored in the vault, it is not a technical limitation of EV
