Pattern Match

When smart archiving is enabled, define files to archive based on wildcard patterns that appear in the file name or contents of the file.

Entity Match

When smart archiving is enabled, define files to archive based on entity pattern matches. For more information, see Configuring Entity-Based Archiving Rules.

After Archiving

You can now decide if a file has to be deleted or stubbed after an archiving job using the following options:

Replace the File with a Stub

After an archiving job, the file meeting all the archiving rules specified above will be replaced with a stub in the same location.

Delete the file

After an archiving job, the file meeting all the archiving rules specified above will be deleted from the source location.

Stub Pruning

Applies to: OnePass for Windows, OnePass for BlueArc, OnePass for Celerra, OnePass for NetApp, and Driverless OnePass for Windows

Select the Stub Pruning check box to prune the stubs from the source disk based on access time or modification time. For more information, see Stub Pruning Based On Access or Modified Time.

Choose either of the following options based on you requirement:

Remove stubs with file modification time older than n days

Enter the number of days in the Remove stubs older than n days box. The stubs whose modified time is older than n days are pruned from the source disk.

Remove stubs not accessed in previous n days

Enter the number of days in the Remove stubs not accessed in previous n days box. The stubs that were not accessed in the last n number of days specified are pruned from the source disk.

Remove stubs with stub creation time older than n days

Enter the number of days in the Remove stubs with stub creation time older than n days box. The stubs that were created before the last specified n number of days are pruned from the source disk.

Enable redundancy check for archived data

This option is selected by default on new subclients. Select the option on upgraded subclients to perform a redundancy check and ensure that multiple copies of the files are available in the storage disk. A file that meets the archiving rules is stubbed only if another copy of the file is available on a different storage disk. A stub can be recalled only if a copy of source file is available on the storage disk. However, if the storage disk is corrupted or misplaced, then the stub cannot be recalled.
