Need info about Backup / Archive Folder [message #116362] Fri, 26 September 2014 19:31 Go to next message

Hello All

Need some help find this info.

Is there any docs about the Backup process, detailing what should be in the Backup and Archive Folders? I don't know the system well and trying to get a handle on what was setup here before me.

What I need to know is, what should be in the Backup and Archive folders (which are two separate folder which I'm guessing is ok.)

I see zip files in both and a folder of the current month in the Archive.

The Backup folder is unclear; how far back should the files go?

How are this folders linked?

Can I disable the Archive folder and only have a Backup folder or does Kerio archive the Backup folder every month.

If there is a link for this that would be great.

Thank You
Keith

Here's a link to the entire KB section on Archiving and Backup:

http://kb.kerio.com/category/kerio-connect/server-configurat ion/archiving-and-backup/

Depending on your industry/company - I'd leave the Archive on because in my opinion, if a user deletes a message after receipt, it's could be gone for good after the Full Backup it's included in is deleted.

For example I keep 5 full weekly backups. If after 6 weeks that message comes into question, the only way I can find it is the Archive.

I use the Back-up for disaster recovery and Archive for legal-type purposes.
