So, the upgrade from 2012 to 2013 went off with just a few hiccups and only a few hassles but it is back up.
(had to change a aspx IIS thing and had to do something with the LM server, and so on)
Comparing the sizes before and after I am disturbed to notice I have lost 65k files.
The question is - what did I lose? Have I lost large swaths of my drawings? Or did vault kindly clean up my files and toss "old versions" and so on?
We need to know, if my vault was trashed I need to restore my backup. There was no indication of any mishaps during the upgrade, and a cursory look through stuff doesn't show anything missing that we've worked on lately...
From the Vault 2013 "What's New"...
Reduction of Redundant File Copies
Autodesk Vault 2013 offers more performance and administrative updates with major enhancements to file version creation. In previous releases, metadata-only changes to a document required creation of a new physical file, resulting in duplicate files in the filestore. Vault 2013 no longer requires this file duplication, resulting in a smaller initial filestore size and reduced growth over time.
So maybe it has to do with this?
This is correct, 2013 no longer creates unnecessary file duplication and in addition to this it removes existing filestore duplicates. Thus shrinking the file store.
Hope this helps.
