What is the Archive option under portable?


Portable backups can be configured to place a copy of the Portable backup directory in a specified location. The Archive option is configured under the Expire-Action. Reload can be configured to either delete or archive a portable that has expired. The Archive feature requires that you specify a location for the Reload Agent to move the data to after it has expired. Once Reload has “Archived” a Portable Backup, the Reload server no longer manages the data.
