Transparent file archiving solution 2008/2012 Server
Posted on 2013-11-25
We are looking for a method to silently archive user data to another storage medium but maintain transparency to the users. For example, a folder hasn't been accessed for 2 years. That folder and it's contents turn into a series of some form of pointers still visible to the user but the data is actually being accessed on another storage medium. Are there any built-in features of either FSRM and a combination of other tools (DFS?) to be able to accomplish this? I'd also be interested in any third party utilities that could assist in this as well. I am researching and figuring out a few ways now, I am just looking for any suggestions or any tried and true methods people have used in the past to attack this common problem.
