Policy Type

A policy will either be a migrate, replicate, or purge type.

Migrate - Move files or video from one Vault to another Vault. Use migrate to move data into another Vault that may have more space available, or have better performance, or move unnecessary and older data offline completely.

Replicate - Copy multiple instances of stored files that can be accessed for retrieval. Use replicate to copy data into a storage device or to share the data with another network.

Purge - Remove data that is no longer needed, or use as a way to keep Vaults uncluttered and clear. The policy manages the scheduled purge.

Activity Setting

Setting a policy to Active allows the policy to run. A check in the checkbox makes the policy active.
