We have a file server being archived using EV Archive server. We are running version 22.214.171.12427. It is presented as a file server target and is currently being archived successfully.
However the share has lots of high resolution images and as a result viewing thumbnails and the actual image is very slow.
Is there a way that I can improve the performance of EV archive for this particular sub folder e.g. less rigiourious in how it archives or can I exclude this folder from being archived?
Any advice on this would be most appreciated.

you can do both. you can exclude the folder or the file type, you can try to enable pass-through recall

Thanks Andrew, do you happened to know any knowledge base articles for me to achieve this?
I have been struggling to find any items out there on the web.

should all be covered in the admin guides. for example, page 118 in Setting_up_File_System_Archiving.pdf covers pass-through recall.

If you really wanted to exlude it from Archiving, or change the filters placed on the files when running the Archiving task (different archiving rules to follow before archiving the files) then you can always use Retention Folders it was made for this exact thing:-
But as Andrew says, if Pass-Through helps speed up the recalls enough then that may be a better option for you.

Ben, kindly explain how Retention Folders can speed up retrieval times for archived items.

Sorry for the delayed response, I was responding to the later part of the OPs request:-
or can I exclude this folder from being archived?
As mentioned at the beginning of the post above - 'If you really wanted to exclude it from Archiving....' - it wasn't a suggestion to speed up recalls, just pointing the OP to a solution to the alternative request.

:You can create a folder policy to "do not archive", create an ArchivePoint on that specific folder and apply the folder policy to that folder. The "Setting up File System Archiving" pdf in the section "Defining volume and folder policies" give pretty clear instructions, as well as the section "Configuring target volumes, target folders and archive points".
