Hoping to get some opinions.

Plain and simple. I would say 90% of our data stored on the network are PST files created from Outlook. Now when I say 90%, I am talking about hundreds and hundreds of GB, maybe even a TB of data that consists of purely PST files.

What do other companies do to combat people "needing" to save 10 years of email history? I know one of my options is buy more storage, but want to know what other options are out there, or what other people are doing.
