1. This depends.
-> It is not possible to archive all e-mail which was sent/received in 2010 to a seperate partition
-> It is possible to have everything which gets archived in a specific timeframe to be in a seperate partition
-> Just close your partition on 31.12.2010 and open a new one
-> This then writes everything which gets archived in 2011 into the new partition
-> Then close this partition on 31.12.2011
-> and so on
(You can even do this automatically once you update to EV8 an up, it's called "partition rollover")
2. You may want to further elaborate on what you exactly want to do.
Here two impressions on what is possible:
. This depends on a number of settings, like: Is deletion allowed in general, what setting have you got for "deletion" in Outlook
-> Deletion has to be allowed
-> "Delete on Delete" setting has to be enabled (Shortcut deletion in outlook deletes both, Exchange & Enterprise Vault data)
-> OR: You delete it manually from Enterprise Vault using e.g. Archive Explorer
You do automatic deletion using storage expiry, which deletes expired items from enterprise vault, and (depending on the setting "Delete orphaned shortcuts") deletes the shortcut from Enterprise Vault.
Moving items between stores/partitions is not possible.
The only thing possible is moving whole Archives to different stores (but only using Enterprise Vault 8.0 SP4 and up)
Hi maxwitts! Thanks for your quick reply!
Now that I know 1 and 2 are possible I'll look at the manual and also follow your recommendation about EV Administrator via Virtual Academy.
Could you elaborate on the "environment to be more granular moving forward"?
Thanks MichaelZ! This will be a great help.
On 2 my idea was for instance to have the possibility to restore an item to Outlook (for whichever reason) removing it permanently from EVault. It seems from your description it's a possible configuration option, right?
Whats an "Archive" from Evault perspective? Whats the relation with Stores and Partions?
