We need a feature that would greatly improve the usefulness of Enterprise Vault in our company.

We wish EV to automatically delete obsolete placeholders on the filesystems that are archived by EV.

By obsolete placeholders, we mean placeholders that have not  been used for a duration longer than a configurable quantity, for instance 1 year.

Obviously, this would require EV to log every file recall triggered by access requests on placeholders. Any placeholder that has not triggered a recall for more than a year could then be deleted from the file system, thus reducing the number of objects stored in the file system.

The archived documents could still be accessed, through the archive explorer or the query tool.

We have this request on the roadmap. I cannot confirm a delivery vehicle for it at this stage, but it is a highly requested feature which we want to be able to deliver.
