File System Reporting Tool
Your file server storage usage continues to grow by leaps and bounds until either one day the backups won’t run or don’t finish in time; or you just run out of storage space.
You can’t manage what you can’t see.
If you do not have an easy way to get reports on your file server storage usage, then it will only result in a fire drill when you are scrambling to find free space when the hardware fills up. It’s tough going to your boss to justify new hardware when you have no facts or evidence of what happened to all the storage space
The Windows basic tools are okay but really useless when you have hundreds of gigabytes or terabytes to analyze. But there is good news. Waterford Technologies provides an affordable, easy-to-install File Analyzer File System Reporting Tool.
File System Reporting and Analysis Tool
File Analyzer gives you file system reporting that pays for itself many times over (high ROI!). No more flying blind or weekends desperately searching for storage relief. With File Analyzer, you will immediately see how your file storage is being used and wasted – by owner, by file type, by age (last modified, created, accessed), by folder path, by size, by name. It’s easy to get users or managers to take action when you have the facts to show them.
Understand what is on your file servers: File Analyzer reporting and analysis gives you the understanding and insight into your file server storage usage. With File Analyzer, you will immediately see how your file storage is being used and wasted.
Clean Up: File Analyzer gives you reports where you can see the oldest, most duplicates, and clear vision into the “junk” that fills up your file servers. From any report, click on a file or folder and toss it into the trash to remove the files from your file server. Reclaim valuable storage space. You can use File Archiver policies for file archiving to delete files that are old or unneeded.
Set a Storage Goal and use Automated Policies: File Archiver has automated policies that can free up space on your file servers. Files that are older than a specified time period, unneeded, or unused are automatically moved to a file archive where they are compressed, encrypted and stored for automatic retrieval. You can have different policies for different folders. The original file location contains a tiny 1K shortcut link “stub” that automatically retrieves the file from the archive. You can migrate the shortcut to the new file server. It’s seamless to users. Files are shrunk and de-duplicated on to lower cost storage.
File Archiver packs your files (compressed, encrypted, de-duplicated, single instanced) into folders on low cost storage that reduce your long backup time even more.
In a today’s economy, you have daily pressure to reduce costs and deliver more value. File Anayzer gives you the first step in managing your storage with file system reporting tool. You will be surprised at how much junk you have on your servers that can be deleted or archived.
