This article describes the move media data management policy.

Move Media policies provide a way to relocate your conversation media files from their existing storage location to another storage (for archiving purposes). You can define a storage target (previously created) to move the media files to and a set of filters to specify which conversations should this policy be executed on.

The Move Media policy supports dual archiving which allows storing the files on 2 separate storage targets. For more information, see Resilient storage and archiving.

A Move Media policy will only move the actual files in the file system, it will not mark the conversations as archived in the Verba database. This means that from the perspective of the Verba Web interface (particularly searching for calls) this process has no visible impact at all.
To create a policy that moves the files and also marks them as archived use the Archive in DB and move media action instead.
