Archive configuration

Archive configuration for Exchange Reporter Plus audit data can be done using the Archive settings option in the product. When the processed event log go beyond the specified time period, the data is removed from the working database and is written to a separate SQL file for each time period. This file is zipped and stored in an archive folder in the default installation path. This helps in maintaining the working database size for optimum performance.

  1. Go to the Settings tab.
  2. Navigate to Configuration → Exchange Server → Archive Settings.
  3. Choose the category of reports you want to archive and set the age for data to be archived.

    Note: You can also archive data older than 90 days using Exchange Reporter Plus.

  4. Enter an Archive Folder Path to store the logs and choose the retention period.
  5. Choose the schedule time for archiving and also monitor the last run’s timing and status.

    Note: You can archive the logs whenever you wish using the Run Now option.

  6. Click on Save.
