Delete PSTs and Tapes Within Retention Window

When you define a retention policy, don't just impose on the archive.

  • PSTs and tape backups are still lingering around.
  • They are subject to e-discovery, and retrieving information from them can be extremely expensive and disruptive--far more so than with an archiving tool.
  • Tapes and PSTs need to be disposed of within the retention window.
  • Don't forget third-party external material; e.g., material at Iron Mountain.
  • Tapes should be used for disaster recovery. Recycle them within the retention window.
