Not sure of the long term effects. Like if you do a compress database function...will it delete things in the database like those jobs? Or after a Prinergy upgrade? Of course as long as you have all of the old files you could always re-create the job manually and process the files back into it.

I tried it with a test job and it seemed to go alright. I tried to open a pdf from Workshop after the files were deleted and it clicked a few times and stopped cause it couldn't find the files. When I copied the folder back. everything seems to work as normal. Opening PDF's, creating VPS's, outputting to proofs, etc.


I think the trainer briefly mentioned this as a "poor man's archiving". Just not sure of any long term problems that might pop up.

The place I worked previously had the Archiving feature and it worked great. Just seems like an awful lot of $$$ to pay for a script.

Well in theory it sounds like it should work as that is kind of how Kodak Archiving works. By that I mean it archives the whole folder to a Windows backup compressed file and then purges the job folder from the system but keeps it in the database. So when you want to restore it you can still go back to the job in Workshop and restore which then finds the compressed backup files and uncompresses it back into the system. So like I said, it sounds like it would work but who knows what Kodak has up their sleeve to prevent that.

With your method, once you delete the folder from the Jobs drive the files will be gone but I assume Prinergy would still list the job in Workshop. Not sure what would happen if you tried to open it with the folder missing though. In the above archiving scenario the folder is missing too but it can open the job and if you try to access a file it tells you it isn't available. And I'm also not sure that once you restored the folder to the jobs drive if Prinergy would still recognize it properly.

I would definitely try it thoroughly with a copy of a job or three or ten before doing it for real.

Since we didn't purchase the Archiving option for Prinergy I'm trying to come up with an alternative way to "Archive" jobs.My thought was to copy the whole job folder to external hard drives and then delete them off the server. That way the history stays intact and if we need the job we can just copy the folder back onto the Prinergy server.

Anyone know of any downsides to doing this? Anyone have an alternative solution? We need to keep all files in the User Defined folders which can get over 100+ GB.

Ghost in the Machine.

If that was the case it seems like it would affect more than firefox. I had a old outdated google bookmarks extension loaded that might have been some of the problem. It's web address now just goes to some kind of parked domain. I uninstalled it and see if that cures it.

Something is definitely wobbly with my Firefox. Today it keeps auto opening up some window for PlutoTV which I have never seen before in my life.

So I was finally able to take a look at the virus search logs and I found it interesting that of the 2 things, one was searchme@mybrowserbar.com.xpi in the firefox folder. I haven't used firefox in years so I don't know how that could have gotten in there. I did see one mention of a cnet download possibly be a cause and I do believe I visited cnet for something in the last year but that really doesn't mean that's where it came from.

I only use a old ass version of chrome and an equally old version of safari. I'm wondering if I should uninstall firefox. The only reason I'm not doing it already is if chrome and safari have issues I won't be able to install firefox because any existing download won't be old enough. I've tried opera and it just laughed when it saw I was on SL.

Anyway I just thought that maybe something outside of firefox may have infected your install.

I need a job at your place but that's a bit of a haul from Highland Lakes. I'm willing your presses were running more than just a half a day this week.
