Archiving issues with Pro/Intralink

  1. Does anyone else have issue with the lack of archiving capability
    within Pro/Intralink?

    As a technical consultancy we have many folders, each allocated to
    client projects. Project life varies, and at the end of this it is
    important to archive data to keep the vault size down. We also need
    to be able to retrieve this data for further future work. We are at
    the stage now of having nearly 20Gb of data being backed up daily, and

    As some sort of work-around we were advised to create a new vault and
    cluster for archiving. Projects could then be moved to a new folder
    based on the archive cluster. Sounds great, but in practise all that
    happens is a change to the metadata. You then need to modify every
    part before it will move just the most recent version into the archive
    vault. This would then need to be followed by purging of all old
    releases. This is not archiving!

    I can't believe that PTC are so short-sighted as to think this
    functionality is not required, especially as this existed within

    Does anyone know of a real approach to archiving in Pro/Intralink?
