BLOB Recall

This job returns externalized content BLOBs to their associated SharePoint content database. It can be scheduled to run on a certain day and time or it can be run  immediately by clicking Recall Now.

NOTE:  Content does not need to be recalled before deleting a profile. Deleting the profile will automatically schedule a Recall job for the profile.

It is strongly recommended that an Unused BLOB Cleanup Timer Job be run so that there is no confusion as to why there may be some BLOBs remaining after the Recall Job is performed.

BLOB Recall does not process Large File content. Please see Large File Support for more information.

Please see the Externalize and Recall Job Considerations before performing the timer jobs.
