You can configure when a logical volume will roll over based on a time schedule (daily, weekly, monthly). Unlike size-based rollover volumes—that roll over and create new physical volumes based on a size limit—time-based rollover volumes focus more on storing and organizing data for a specific time period. For instance, a local charity may want all documents scanned in October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), to be stored on their own volume. Because each month is dedicated to a different event, it makes sense for them to create a new physical volume per month/event.

To configure a volume to rollover based on time

When creating a new logical volume:

1.  Expand the Volumes node in the Laserfiche Administration Console.
Note: The logical volume icon has a gold disk and the physical volume icon has a silver disk.
2.  Select Logical Volume under Volume Type in the New Volume dialog box.
3.  Select Rollover every and either type or click the up and down arrows to add/select the number of days, weeks, or months for which you want the volume to roll over.
4.  Use the drop-down menu to select Day(s), Week(s), or Month(s).
