  • Publication number: 20220291855
    Abstract: In an approach to automatically reclassifying files in an HSM system, responsive to occurrence of a recall to move a file on a hierarchical storage system from a secondary storage to a primary storage, whether stub metadata exists for the file is determined. Responsive to determining that stub metadata exists for the file, whether reclassification of the file is necessary is determined based on the stub metadata. Responsive to determining that the reclassification of the file is necessary, the file is reclassified, where the reclassification uses a latest classification model, and further where the stub metadata is updated with results of the reclassification. The file is migrated from the primary storage to the secondary storage based on the stub metadata.
