I've been asked by my IT group to investigate reducing our vault size which is currently about 100gig. I've been using PDMworks for 7+ years and never used the archived function or know the best way to accomplish the task.

I have some questions with the archive process....

Does the Archive function remove the file(s) from the vault saving disk space or does it leave a copy but not visible unless restored?

I have my revisions set to PRE and REL. Can I easily archive all the "PRE" and leave only the latest "REL" copy?

Any suggestions, comments or tips is appreciated. I will probably contact my VAR but want to understand the process better before calling them.
