I'd have thought the biggest objection to the use of Total Recall (always makes me think of the film typing that) is that it potentially exposes your organization to a significant dollar cost that they weren't expecting. Obviously if you have the relevant license (bundled with compression now I think) then it is an option.
I see nothing wrong with the original proposal, I'd sort of hope that truncate was subject to change control (and code that might dynamically run it was peer reviewed before implementation) though. On Aug 23, 2012 11:32 PM, "Adric Norris" <> wrote:
