Replacement Product

The SharePoint Archiver Agent has been deprecated in favor of a converged data management approach. All SharePoint data management, including data protection and recovery, Storage Manager, BLOB storage, and archiving solutions are now available by using the SharePoint Server Agent.

To continue using the SharePoint Archiver Agent as is, do not upgrade the client to version 11.

If you want to upgrade the client to version 11, restore the archived data to the SharePoint Server before upgrading the client.
