I have a file server that houses all sorts of files that I would like to block, and then slowly remove (.pst files, media files, etc..).  I just installed FSRM for Windows 2003 R2, and I was wondering what, if anything, will happen too all the files that are already stored on the server?  Will they stay there and just not be able to be accessed?  Deleted?  Corrupted?  etc...?  Thanks.

Nothing will happen to the previously saved files. Users (or applications) will still have access to those files...the FSRM will only block attempts to save certain files moving forward after your screen is in place.

So the file screening only pertains to saving of new files.
