Archive Settings


The Archive Configuration of Exchange Reporter Plus allows to archive audit, monitoring, OWA, and mail traffic reports data that consume most of the disk space. Archiving such data helps to 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 number of days will be loaded into 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, and it must be restored in order to view them.


Steps to archive data

  1. Go to the 'Admin' tab.

  2. Navigate to 'Configuraions --> Archive Settings' in the left pane.

  3. Select the categories to be archived.

  4. In the 'Archive data older than' text box, mention how old (in days) the data must be, to be archived.

      Note: Data will be archived, only if it is older enough (days specified in step 4), and the table in which it resides has a minimum of 500,000 entries.
  5. In the 'Archive Folder Path' field, specify the location where the archived files should be stored.

      Note: The default storage path is "<Installation folder>\Exchange Reporter Plus\archive\"
  6. From the 'Retain Archive Logs for' drop-down, select the duration for which the archived files must be held, after which they will be permanently deleted.

  7. Specify the time at which the archive schedule must be run.

      Note: The default run time is 2 AM GMT
  8. Click on 'Save'.


Steps to restore archived data

  1. Go to the 'Admin' tab.

  2. Navigate to 'Configuraions --> Archive Settings' in the left pane.

  3. Click on 'Restore Archived Data' option found at the top right corner of the page.

  4. Select the 'Restore' option found under the 'Action' column corresponding to the file to be restored.

  5. You can also restore multiple archived files by selecting the check box found in each row, and click on 'Restore' found at the top of the table.

Steps to re-archive the restored data

      Note: Restored data older than 2 days (48 hours) will be automatically re-archived.
Note: When you choose to archive a category, all the reports under the chosen category will be archived. Each report will be saved under a different file name, mostly same as that of the report name. Check this document to know about the file name and report name mapping.
