Applies to: File system servers when data is analyzed from a live source
At the data source level, you can run an archiving operation to regain disk space on a file server. When you archive files, a request is sent to a reviewer and an approver. The request must be reviewed and approved before the files are archived. After the request is reviewed and approved, the archiving operation backs up the files, and then deletes the files from the source file server.
When you run an archiving operation, you can use an existing archive plan, or you can create an archive plan. The data is backed up to the storage location that is specified by the archive plan.
Before You Begin
By default, archiving operations exclude *.dll, *.bat, *.exe, *.cur, *.ico, *.lnk, *.a, *.ksh, *.csh, *.sh, *.lib, and *.so files. However, these files are included in counts of the number of files that will be archived, which you might see when specifying the archive operation.

The Data Insights page appears.
Under Risk Analysis, click Sensitive data governance.

Optional: Add reviewers and approvers to the review request:
