    Hello,

    We have file archiving installed. The archive library is Full. 2TB, however when we look at our CLA there is only 400 gig used for archiving. The retention time is Infinit on the disklib and also on tape. How can I cleanup the disklibrary by removing previous versions.

     

    Regards

    Cees

    Hello,

    Go under the Propries of the subclient, Retention tab, select how many versions you want to keep or disable versions and run data aging. It should clear all the old versions of the file.

    Hi Cees,

    It could be data has not met retention, and other policies may be writing to this device, or some backlog in the overall Data Aging process.

    If you right click the library and go to Associations tab, how many copies do you see there?  Anything other than the Archiving copy?

    Also is the Archiving copy deduped, and if not do you have disk management enabled?

    Hi Vali,

    In the retention tab 1 version was selected.

    Now I cleared the tab and I wil see what happens.

    Regards

    Hi Ali,

    there is only one copy on this library. There is no dedup on the archiving.

    The disklibrary is on a Nettap.

    And as I mentioned in the first place the retention is infinit.

    Regards

    Cees

    Hi Cees,

    Something doesn't seem right, unless you Dedupe ratio is really off and you're App size of data (before dedupe and compression) is 400GB yet footprint on disk is in the TBs.  Would suggest to log an incident and have your setup reviewing, unless Data Aging itself is backlogged, which again I highly doubt as you mentioned the Infinite retention.
