Managing Archive Stores

Within GFI Archiver, Archive StoresA collection of email sources, email metadata and search indexes within GFI Archiver are the containers that contain the archived emails. Archive Stores include several components, such as:

  • A database where email metadata is stored
  • A database where both email metadata and email data is stored
  • A disk location used as an email index
  • A disk location used as storage for email data.

Archive Stores are created automatically by GFI Archiver, based on an Archive Store Profile that defines their name, database type and file locations.


If New Archive Store Settings are not configured, emails are not archived. For more information refer to Configuring New Archive Store Settings.
