Public Folders "freeze"

Hello everyone

We keep mailboxes of (some of the) users who left the company as a Public Folders.
Problem is, as time passes, messages start to "disappear" from these folders, not by user deletion, but because of the system maintenance. So, we would need to copy what we need from ex-users mail folder(s) and "freeze" it that way.
I know I've stumbled upon some (not really user friendly) way to do this couple of years ago, but cannot seem to find it anywhere now.
Something like, exclude certain folders from daily maintenance or something like that.
Can someone please point me to this or, even better, suggest proper way to do this.

Regards

Hi Arron

It's definitely pruning, there is a lot of stuff in
AccountPrune_*.log(s) looking like this:

So, I just set 'Public folder pruning' -> 'Delete messages older than XX
days' to 0.
That should get the job done, right?

Other then setting RO attrib to the MSG files via OS (that is what you
meant by "...to mark all files as read-only...", right?), is there a way
to control pruning on a folder level from MD?

Thank you
