[ngw] unarchiving GroupWise archives problem

GroupWise archiving strikes again - and it's GroupWise 8 on NetWare.

A client has 500 users who have archives in multiple locations, but they think that most are on a server share. A former administrator thought this was a good idea. Now they're installing a Barracuda archive appliance and want to unarchive all the user archives. They don't want to visit 500 users and make them unarchive their mail. They also know that their users will simply ignore any requests for them to manually unarchive their mail.

There's another small problem. Since the archive location wasn't locked down, they now don't even know where all the archives are or whether users have multiple archives. They decided they would only worry about the last archive - but they'll have to inspect the workstations and network directories for some people.

Does anyone have a suggestion for dealing with this problem - other than visiting 500 people?

Thanks for any help.
