This problem plagues private industry too
Most major migrations, whether from legacy to cloud or just from one toolset to another may face issues about what to do with historical data that can't be tossed but would be prohibitively costly to migrate/translate into the new venue. Companies need to think about this when undertaking a major project like a move to cloud-based email or even from tape backup to cloud backup. Sometimes it means keeping the legacy tool around for a while until those old records expire.

Records Riddle: NARA simplifies, automates email archiving
It tooks an integrated project team three years to come up with a way to designate Google email as tempory, permanent or nonrecord and build an automated way of acting on those designations? Well, it hasn't been done before, I'll give them that. And if it's automated, that finally removes the human trying to classify and capture keywords from millions of emails being moved into archival folders. Many agencies and businesses should be following the NARA example, except maybe for the three years.

But setting the rules up correctly remains a fine art.  If there's anyone to watch, its NARA.
