Archive Settings

The Archive Settings option in Exchange Reporter Plus allows you to archive the auditing, monitoring, OWA, and email traffic reports that consume most of the disk space. Archiving this data helps free up disk space, resulting in improved performance of the product.

Once the archive settings are configured, data in the database older than the chosen period will be loaded to a CSV file and saved as a zipped folder in the installation directory, or in the specified location. Once archived, the data will be removed from the product. It must be restored in order to view it again.

Steps to archive data

  1. Go to the Settings tab.
  2. Navigate to Configuration → Exchange Server → Archive Settings.
  3. Select the reports that you want to archive under various categories. Also, enter the number of days after which the reports must be archived in the boxes given beside each report.
  4. In Archive Folder Path, specify the location where you want to store the archived files.
  5. Note: The default storage path is C:\ManageEngine\5500\Exchange Reporter Plus\archive.
  6. From the Retain Archive Logs for drop-down, select the duration for which the archived files should be held until permanently deleted.
  7. Specify the time at which the archive schedule should run every day.
  8. Note: The default run time is 2am GMT.
  9. You can also view the recent Archive Run Time and Status. Click Run Now to archive files as and when required.
  10. Click Save.
