I have been reviewing the file archiving process that seems to have been recently implemented. Our system has been running a periodic job archiving all project files older than 30 days on our server, for the past few days (I think) and it's about 80% complete.
The file archiving process seems reasonable and I think it will work well for us. Since I'm on the hosted account, XTRF automatically zips and archives every project file that has been closed for 30 days. Now, I'm implementing a system to back up, and then delete these files from my XTRF server and host them locally. Seems reasonable. I don't see any problems.
Has anyone else looked into the new archiving process? Has it worked for you? Do you see any potential pitfalls? I don't see any big ones, but I'd love other perspectives.
Another note, each zip file is supposed to be password protected. However, that doesn't seem to be the case - rather they open like regular zip files. Or do I need to update a setting to make sure the files are password protected?
