MTA Archiving Cleanup

Postby MartyScIV » Mon Sep 25, 2017 4:19 pm

We are using MTA Archiving to log all our emails. We have been running for many months successfully. My question is about best practices in backing up of the Archive folder. We currently perform cloud backups of all the daily folders but do not remove them from the server. The server is quickly approaching 50GB in that Archive folder. Since we are backing of the individual MAI files, can we simply delete the daily folders as they are backed up? Do we need to do anything with the folder.xml or index.xml or is it safe to just delete?

You can safely delete them since you have them backed up.
