ArchiverFS is an archiving tool with a long history of development. Its development started back in the year 2002, and was previously named Archive manager. Since then it has come a long way and is now used by many well-known organizations around the world.
Its advantage to other similar tools is that it does not store any information in the DB, rather it uses functionalities already available within the operating system and its file management system. It allows you to archive files based on their type, size and age, among many other archiving options.
Because no DB is needed for storing any archived information, it has the advantage when it comes to price for its deployment, while even without purchasing the license you are able to setup and test it by only being limited to processing 100 files each time an archiving task is run.
It is advisable that a separate account is created on Windows, which is dedicated to this tool and has all the appropriate permissions. It is also advisable that this tool is setup and used by users that have the knowledge needed to make everything run smoothly.
Bottom line, ArchiverFS is a lightweight tool for archiving your data with many advanced features also for more demanding users. It does take some time and knowledge to configure it at first, but once it is setup properly, it proves to be a reliable and affordable solution for any archiving need.
