Transparent file archiving solution 2008/2012 Server

Hello,

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.

Thanks!

lots of third party tools, really depends on your budget.

Thanks for the suggestion Donnk.

That looks like it would suffice but seems pretty involved with a decent amount of overheard/learning (SQL backups, training on usage etc.), I'll leave this open to see if there are any native ways that could be a bit simpler.
