Project handover to some in the construction industry means delivering “tons” of drawings, and other documentation to the project owner upon completion. Bluebeam can reduce the massive amount of paper with the digitization of the O&M manuals.

Cold Storage is a feature in SOLIDWORKS PDM that will automatically move or delete old versions of files. It can be used to reduce the amount of disk space required on an archive server. It’s similar to tape backups that would be used to take data offline to minimize storage requirements in the early days of computing. While adding disk storage is relatively inexpensive these days, managing your file archive is something an administrator should consider. In this post we will discuss some considerations, how to configure cold storage, and how it is used.
