The contents of the Inactive Store are files. These files are typically data files such as EML in ZIP, PST, MBOX, or MAILDIR. The contents of the Inactive Store are searchable using the file names.
When to use the Vaultastic Inactive Store
Case 1: Upload data files to a Cloud Store
If your organization has Legacy Data in PST/EML or other data formats and are looking for a low-cost option to save these files on the Cloud, then the Vaultastic Inactive Store is a good option.
Case 2: You want to reduce the size of mailboxes on the primary store but do not want to make the email data searchable
Suppose you are looking to reduce the mailboxes' size on the primary mail server but have not enabled live mail archiving to Vaultastic Active Store. In that case, you can use LegacyFlo to upload data directly from the mailboxes on the primary mail server to the Inactive Store.
Case 3: You are looking at reducing the size of Vaults on the Active Store
You have enabled live mail archiving from your mail server to the vaults on the Active Store and now are looking at reducing the Active Storage usage without deleting the data. In this case, you can move data from the Active Store to the Inactive Store using LegacyFlo.
