About setting up File System Archiving
Preparing the file server as necessary, and then adding it as a target file server. You must install the Enterprise Vault FSA Agent on a Windows file server on which you want to leave placeholder shortcuts, or collect data for FSA Reporting.
Creating volume policies to define how and what to archive from target volumes. Optionally you can also create folder policies, to override the volume policies for specific target folders.
Adding the target volumes, and assigning the volume policies.
Adding target folders, and assigning the parent volume policy or a folder policy. You can define an archive point for each folder that you want to associate with a separate archive. A folder with an archive point forms the top of an archive. Files from the folder and its subfolders are stored in the same archive.
Configuring other features as required, such as retention folders, and FSA Reporting.
Configuring the File System Archiving tasks to schedule archiving and associated activities, and to determine the mode in which the archiving is to run.
