More on ArchiveFS and New Product IP Spider

Version 3.460 of ArchiveFS has been established for release Feb 2018. It will comprisesome new features with functionality that will let users tag files for archiving, and care for project\folder archiving to help our clients in the financial and legal sectors.

Unlike other file server programs

Unlike nearly all other file server software for archiving solutions, MLtek doesn’t try to store your files in a database. In its place they use a share that you create anywhere on your network. It is the use of NTFS from start to finish that makes this solution so fast, reliable and incredibly scalable. NTFS permissions are exactly maintained on your files and folders after they have been processed (unlike most database centered products), and you get all the features you’d expect. These include shortcuts that can be left behind so that users can recall files without needing to trouble IT staff, and as they don’t require a database to store information in processed files it is extremely cost effective to deploy. You can even migrate files over a WAN to a cloud service like Azure, AWS or Google Cloud.


Allthese sums up to give you massive scalability and at an unbelievable price. Our clients come from anassortment of experiences including everything from multi-billion-dollar multi-nationals to local departments of government, health authorities, educational institutions and everything in between. This program can not only help you make the most of your current storage tier, but they can also help with regulatory compliance like Data Protection and even the new EU based GDPR requirements.

Have you wondered

Have you ever sat there and wondered why there isn’t a simple yet effective way to tackle the years and years’ worth of old files that have built up on your file server?

File system level

ArchiverFS works at the file system level and it gives you a structured way to migrate all of your old and unused files to 2nd tier storage, without trying to store files, pointers to files or even file metadata in a database.

Features expected

You will get all the features you would expect such as:

  • Stubs seamless that can be left in the place of old files once they have been moved.
  • Reporting.
  • A wealth of choices to control how files are moved like file age, size, type, etc.
  • Ability to compress files once they have been archived.

But you also get scalability that is massive, operation free of agent and compatibility with massive technologies like de-duplication and DFS.

Up until now all licenses were perpetual and worked on a ‘buy once use forever’ basis with annual support renewals.
