Moving Archived Files via Windows Explorer

I'm trying to move a large folder full of PDF files using Windows Explorer. It's over 6 GB. Probably over half of the files have been archived by Enterprise Vault and Windows can't copy them. Is this normal behavior? What's the work around for this? I know from experience once a file is opened up, Windows can move it but that's obviously not ideal with so many files. Thanks.

One way is to use FSAUtility to recall all of the files... and then do your move.

You could also use FSA Migrator, a product of ours, but the usefulness of that would depend on many factors including how much and how often you want to do these moves, and re-arranges of files.

Thanks, never heard of it (don't know a whole lot about EV). Is that tool on the server or do I need to download it or....?

Explain it to me like I'm an idiot, please. laugh

You want to use something like this

FSAUtility -t -s \\myse...
-e *.pdf

It is part of the main EV Installation and can be found in your install directory
such as D:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault\FSAUtility.exe

I'm trying to use FSAUtility with the -t parameter to restore all of the archived files to their original location, but I'm still running into trouble.

 

FSAUtility -t -s \\myserver\folder -e*.pdf results in: Error: Invalid user switch -t (Restore original files) option.

 

Feels like I'm getting closer but not quite there. What did I do wrong?

Think I finally got it. FSAUtility -t -s "\\myserver\folder"

Is there a way to check the progress?
