Intralink Vault Size Grows and Grows.....

    Our Intralink (3.2) vault size is growing out of control. Last year
    (August), the vault size was about 110gb. We've done about 100
    projects since that time and it's ballooned to 290gb.

    My understanding is that purges need to occur to shrink that. After
    extensive purging (back to the last two revisions of the project)
    we've only been able to recover about 40gb of drive space.

    So...where o' where is it growing? Our projects range in size (if
    exported out) to between 200 and 600mb. If I do the math....taking
    into account our larges project (100 projects x 600mb each=6gb...NOT

    I was wondering if anyone knows a way to get a full list of projects
    and their accompanying size (by project) so we know which ones to
    attack? If anyone has any other ideas I'm totally open to that too.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Must be a typo, but 100 x 600mb = 60Gb, not 6Gb. And if you're only
    purging to the last 2 revs, you could easily have two different
    versions (not revs) of each file, which would double your storage to
    120Mb...... More than 1 version per rev, and you could be up to

    Have you tried dumping the entire mess to a backup media and doing a
    real purge, keeping just the last version of the each rev? I mean,
    have you every REALLY had occasion to retreive two revs prior?

    Yeah...I know there's very little reports in DSMU or Intralink to list
    those out, especially with size.

    Perhaps your Oracle guy could forward the query he created to the
    Intralink database?? I'm desperately trying to NOT run out of disk
    space for our Engineers. Again, though, it's the vault size I need to
    get smaller. (not the DB size per se)

    Yes, I calculated wrong on the 6gb thing. Whoops should be 60gb.
    (still can't reconcile the 290gb thing though) I also don't think
    they need the last two revisions. They do simply because of paranoia
    that one could be messed up or corrupt they would still have a
    "backup". (even though one has never been corrupt comes
    from the old days of their CAD experience before ProE)
