Managing Large Archives

Hello everyone.

I'm looking for some insight on an issue that has come to our attention with some users' archives. They have managed to have just one archive which have grown over 10GB.

I was wondering if anyone out there has come across a tool I could use to break up these archives into smaller size archives and not having to go to the manual process of managing archived emails and creating them manually based on dates.

What I want at the end is to have 4 x 2GB archives, but I know that to do that I would have to go through the manual process of pulling the archive into the mailbox, search and filter by dates, move results to a new archive and then so on... until I have them split...

Anyone? Any ideas?

Much appreciated.

    Is there a problem with the archive?

  • No, no problem per se.

    Issue comes when the third party archive tool tries to archive it. It errors out because of the archive size.

    You have an archive tool archiving archives? :-D
    Which one? Wouldn't it be easier to archive directly from the mailbox using that tool?

    Anyway, there's no way to "split" an archive. You'll have to unarchive until the archive shrinks to a size that works. I'd then copy it away and start a new archive. Then again if you have the archive archived somewhere else, you probably don't need the old one in the file system any longer.
