I have an Exchange 2010 server running DAG.  We have alot of Shared Mailboxes and we want to start Archiving these so they do not fill up.  What is the best way to go about doing so?

Thanks in Advanced

Have a designated person go in and move the messages you want to an archive (PST) file.  Then either copy this PST file to a USB stick/disk or burn them to CD/DVD.

We had to do this with our Payroll department and we burned the PST files to a couple of DVDs and stored them in separate locations.

Be aware that PST files can now get to over 18 Gig with Outlook 2007 and higher so it's possible they won't fit on a DVD.

In this case I'd either put them on flash drives or make a copy of the PST file on your server and allow it to be backed up during your normal backup process.
