  • Content Indexing - Tons of duplicate files!
    Posted: 12-10-2019, 2:50 PM

    I have a major issue of files being indexed over and over due to the security permissions changing on the files.  The file modification date and none of the data within the doucments change.  How am I suppose to combat this?  We get billed per file so when the same five million files get indexed again due to an employee leaving and their AD account being removed the cost really starts to add up.


    We are not running full backups.  Incremental with synthetics and the only thing support has been able to determine is that security permissions must be changing.  I can't be the first person to run into this issue.

    We have a new way of Content Indexing where these same files would become the versions of the file and should help with your licensing. Below is the documentation for the same.



    Also, if I understand it right, you are setting the individual users on the every file and when the user leaves, you are going and resetting the user from the file which is causing the backup to happen. If my understanding is right, it is probably better ti have user groups and add or remove the user to the user groups rather than adding the user manualy to each file. In case the user leaves, you could remove the user from the user group itself. Correct me if my understanding is wrong here.
