First released in 2002

Enterprise class unlimited capacity software based file
archiving solution for a fraction of the cost of
Fast and easy to deploy, requires no expensive hardware due to its unique and
incredibly efficient design which doesn't use a database for storing
files, or even pointers to files.
Completely seamless links can be left behind in place
of archived files. Users can still access archived files in thier origional
location with thier origional path, just as if they hadn't been
moved! Files can be archived from any UNC path to any UNC path leaving seamless
links behind, even if the UNC paths are on different servers.
Unique 'Graveyard' job which can be used to end of life archived files, remove
thier links in the live file system and prepare them for final backup/deletion.
Ultra reliable design, no central point of failure.
Everything is done at the file system level
utilising features that Microsoft baked into the NTFS file system. This makes it
infinately scalable, with file systems of over

Lots of options and features to enable you to seamlessly migrate your files to
second line storage in a way and at a time to suit you.

including English, Chinese, Arabic, Hindi and many more (including file systems
with multiple character sets!)

Support is offered for most network file systems including Windows Server
shares using NTFS, NAS and CIFS shares directly hosted on SAN's.
How is this possible? Simple.. No database is ever used to store files in (or even pointers to files).
The only database that is used is the tiny configuration and
job scheduling one which will run happily on the completely free SQL Express
2008 R2 or later.
All of the information regarding where a file has been archived from and too is
maintained in the file system itself through the clever use of directory
structures and file properties.
If you are looking for a fast, lightweight and
powerfull solution then Archive Manager may
be just the thing.
