I am testing EV and would like to know the action or task that needs to run to remove items from the archive after a placeholder has been deleted.
Here is what I have set up:
Running Version 8 sp1
On the File Server Properties - Delete Placeholder Tab, "Delete Archive File" is selected (along with a safety folder)
On the Shortcuts tab of the Policy for this folder "Placeholder" and "Delete archived file when placeholder is deleted" is checked (along with "Delete placeholders for items that have been deleted from archive" which works)
I've ran the task to arch the test files, deleted the placeholders , and run the task again expecting the files to be deleted from the archive, but the archived file still shows up in the archive explorer and is still physically on the store. I tried running an expiry also but that did not help.
So I know and have been able to successfully test is:
The Site Expiry schedule (or run now) on the site props removes archived items that have met thier retention deadline (had to clear my IE cache to see imediate results in archive explorer or search.)
"Shorcut Deletion" tab on the task removed orphaned shortcuts form the file server that have been removed either by storage expiry or manual deletion of archive files.
What triggers the removal of a file from the archive after a placeholder has been deleted from the file server?
Thank you for any help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The archived files are not with-in the safety folder.
The archive vault stores are located on a Data Domain 565.
The files were archived with the DOD settings in place.
Could the Data Domain target have something to do with it??
Maybe I'll test on a vault store local on the EV server.
