bpea1 Please remember that the names, configurations, and units that we chose in this use case have an informative character only.

A company is using contentACCESS File Archive with 2 criteria: a) the Keep original method (backup files with versioning) is often used daily, while b) files older than 1 year are archived with the shortcutting method. The main advantage of the b) method is the spared space on the computer. It is much easier to restore/reopen files stored with method a). It depends on a particular situation which method is advisable to use. You can use both methods simultaneously to have your daily backup (with versions when files are changed) and archive your old files using shortcuts.
