Archiving Image Files - is it possible to leave a thumbnail view?

Archiving Image Files - is it possible to leave a thumbnail view?

Archiving Image Files - is it possible to leave a thumbnail view?

(OP)
We been using Commvault for a good 6 months now, mainly without issues.

However we're getting a lot of complaints from users who are left with a stub of an image file and they can't tell what the image is what until they go through the recall process. Sometimes there are hundreds of image files e.g. photo .jpegs in a marketing folder which are archived after 3 months due to size being >1MB, and it's very time consuming for our users to be doing this.

Does anyone know of a way around this, possibly where a thumbnail of the archived image can be left?

RE: Archiving Image Files - is it possible to leave a thumbnail view?

Pressuming it's a Windows File Systemm and that you have Thumbnails view enabled, I would think the easiest workaround would be to download / purchase a Thumbs.db Viewer - as Thumbs.db is where Windows stores Thumbnail Images.


 

RE: Archiving Image Files - is it possible to leave a thumbnail view?

The idea of DataArchiver is to migrate infrequently used data to secondary media in order to bring back free space on primary media, rather then an extention of the file system. Perhaps you need to consider cataloging the images before they are archived or just storing the imagings on file systems on secondary media instead.

The stub is not a datafile, its a pointer to an offline datafile so I dont think you can thumbnail a stub.
