We recently found out that about 90% of the files in our PDMLink vaults are viewable files - files produced by our CAD workers for consumption by CreoView. There is a new option in the CreoView 3 cad adapter to output PVZ files instead of individual files (.ol, .ed, .pva, etc.). I can get this option to work by manually going through the motions of publishing a file, but the CAD worker seems to ignore this setting and continues to upload individual viewable files to PDMLink. I opened a call with tech support and PTC is telling me that this is intended functionality, but I'm a bit skeptical.
Has anyone had success in using the PVZ format and been able to verify that the files end up in the PDMLink vault as a single compressed viewable file?
Any other suggestions on reducing the number of viewable files stored in the vaults?
