Verify the number of records affected

Each archive rule provides an estimate of the number of records the rule affects in the Record estimate field.

About this task

This estimate only includes primary records and excludes any related records added to the archive rule. The estimate helps you determine if the archive rule affects the number of records you expect it to. If the estimate is too high or low, change the archive rule conditions and then click the Recalculate Estimate related link.


  1. Navigate to System Archiving > Archive Rules.
  2. Select the archive rule you want to estimate records for.
  3. Click the Recalculate Estimate related link.
