FSA Recovery

How could we recover from a drive failure on the File server with placeholders?

What are you using for

What are you using for backups?  A normal backup is fine for the file server, just make sure it ignores offline files or it will try and recall the placeholders when the backups run.

For the EV, the normal backup scenario applies, back up the Vault Store partitions, Indexes,  and the SQL databases.  Without those you could not recover from a disaster!
