Changes to backup procedures

Enterprise Vault 2007 used registry values to control backup mode.

Enterprise Vault Vault 8.0 introduces a new backup mode for vault stores and index locations. This feature enables you to back up vault stores and index locations without the need to restart Enterprise Vault services or set registry values.

The Storage service checks for the old registry values when it starts. There is a warning event if the Storage service finds any of the registry values.

The Enterprise Vault 2007 registry values are still supported in Enterprise Vault 8.0. You can ignore the warning if you want to continue to use the old registry values.

See the 'Backing up Enterprise Vault' chapter in the Administrator's Guide.
