Can any body explain how sharepoint archiving works with the files which are having explicit permissions?
Depends on the policy setting .. like FSA you can choose to Archive them or Ignore them.
I'll try to grab a screenshot, as I set this up just the other day...
ok,i can understand we can have option in the policy that we can ignore or archvie the explicit permission files.
but how it work's,like is it overwriting the permissions to the explicit files with the folder permissions?
When you archive a SharePoint item, it will get the permissions of the folder. So if a document is present in a folder with different permissions they'll be replaced by the folder level permissions after archiving.
You can choose what happens by policy...
Ignore them - the items with explicity permissions won't be archived at all
Archive them with folder permissions - exactly what it says.
Hope that helps.
Customer needs to clarify queries raised prior to run the archiving on Production SharePoint server.
Before that let me brief you with the setup details.
EV Server – Windows 2008 x64 R2 standard Edition
EV Sql Server - Windows 2008 x64 R2 standard Edition , Sql 2008 x64
EV Product version – 10.0.1

Please find the below queries from the customer.
Thanks in Advance
as you have informed that the file with explicit permission will inherit the permissions from the folder when it get archive.
but when i archived the explicit permission file it get archived and the permissions are not get modified it archvies with the explicit permissions.
is anything wronge happened in my case?
thanks in advance
Was the item turned in to a shortcut? Or is it still the 'fat' item? I've not got SharePoint available at the moment, so can't test myself.
Sorry, don't have any other suggestion then at the moment (other than to contact Account Management and/or Support). I was quoting from the help (in the Policy Settings) and did, but now don't, have SharePoint available to verify myself.
Okay so what this is saying is that if an item exists in a folder, and the item has SPECIFIC permissions. The copy IN THE ARCHIVE, will get the folder level permissions (since in EV permissions are ONLY at the folder level). The shortcut will have the explicit permissions, meaning that will only work for the people who have access.. However if the end-user has access to the folder, and they do a search, or use Archive Explorer they will be able to access the archived item, even though it had explicit permissions preventing that.
Does that help?
