Search Views Purge files

Please note that the following is only applicable to File Archiving users.
Search views allow you to purge archived file data. Purging file data from the archive means that the selected files will be permanently deleted from the archive. The option of purging files is only available to users that have the Search Admin Plus role and signed up for File Archiving.
Before being able to perform any purge, "On Demand Purge" has first to be enabled at the OEM level, and it also has to be enabled by the Account Administrator (AO) under ACCOUNT in the Admin interface.
Search Admin Plus (SAPlus) can purge an entire search, a subset of search results (such as filtered or tagged search results), or an individual search result by applying a tag to this individual result.
Please note that purge is only available for search results that only contains file data. If a user, with the SAPlus role, performs a search returning both email (and their associated attachments) and file results, he will not be able to purge files.
If files have been placed under legal hold in a Search A for any reason, and a user (with the SAPlus role) creates a Search B that includes some of the Search A files (that are under legal hold), purge will be automatically disable for Search B.
Follow these steps to perform a purge:
1. Pick the desired file result set you want to purge:

7. A green confirmation message will pop up on the Search Views page to confirm that your purge is queued for processing.

8. The purge that the Search Admin Plus initiated will be displayed on the dashboard, under the PENDING PURGES section.

10. If the message: "You have no more pending purge requests" appears, this means that the purge has been successfully completed.
