The Archiving server role in Lync 2010 does a pretty decent job of living up to it’s namesake in archiving messaging data. Whether on a SAN or locally attached, disk space is not infinite. This means we can’t keep data in SQL forever, even if we need to keep the data around. One option natively built into the Lync PowerShell Cmdlets is Export-CSArchivingData which does exactly what it says and exports archiving data to EML format for backup or viewing. My problem is that this is a manual process and needs human intervention and/or interaction. To fix this, I did what I tend to do best and automated it via PowerShell.
