The pstore.conf configuration file has four settings, described below.
 - Storage : one of "none", "archive", or "journal". With "none", this
   tool leaves the contents of pstore untouched. With "archive", the
   contents of the pstore are moved into the ArchiveDir. With "journal",
   the contents of the pstore are recorded in the systemd journal. The
   default is "archive".
 - SourceDir : contains a path to the pstore. The default is
 - ArchiveDir : contains a path to archive pstore contents. The default
   is "/var/lib/systemd/pstore".
 - AllowUnlink : is one of "yes" or "no". When "yes", the default, then
   files in the pstore are removed once processed. When "no", processing
   of the pstore occurs normally, but the pstore files remain.
