Removing FSA share (returning all data to it's original location)

I am looking for documentation that describes how to turn off FSA for a share. Have looked through the administrators guide and online... Nothing that warrants a guide...

Is it as easy as Unticking "Archive This folder" and "Archive subfolders" on the share properties? Seems too easy.
 

  • I want to unarchive the share. (By unticking Archive this folder and subfolders, does this return the data back to the FS in full next time FSA Task is run?)
  • When it's unarchived delete the data off the FSA (Phsysically delete the data that has been returned from the Windows FS)
  • Remove the Target (Remove the share from the list of targets in Evault)

Could it be as simple as that?

What version of EV?

You would use the FSAUtil to restore the items back and then remove the share as a target and if you don't need it you can remove the FSA Agent (Placeholder service) from the File Server.
