With the help of File system archive jobs it is possible to archive data located either in local file systems or on network shares (UNC paths). Time for which the documents are available in the archive is set via retention categories. The File Archive database and storage is always assigned to a root folder (chapter File Archive settings). This prevents the user from archiving the same root to multiple databases/storages and having troubles with the file retrieve.
The archived files can be viewed either in contentWEB (more information here), or in the shared folders on virtual (more information here). It is also possible to restore the archived files from shortcuts, or to recover them, if the original was deleted from the file system.
