Perhaps a hybrid of human review and deletion would work?
1) Identify the most recently updated items (3 to 9 months) and mark
them for human review.
2) Make an easily-accessible catalog of the remaining items. This can
be done many ways, but the best would be a list in the acutal folder
where the items reside.
3) Back up everything.
4) Remove the items that were older than the human-reviewed ones. For
the first 6 to 9 months, remove these to a readily-accessible storage
device for quick retrieval. After that, move them to tape and/or
A little mix of both worlds.
