Benefits of File Archiver

File Archiver helps you to save storage. It achieves this by implementing four key processes:

1. Reporting

The reporting view of File Archiver allows you to view your files by server, owner, size, type, name – essentially any indicator you need – so that you can understand who or what is abusing your storage.

File System Reporting Tool

Data on your file servers increases at an alarming rate, until eventually you run into problems with back up times and running 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

FileAnalyzer 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 FileAnalyzer, 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: FileAnalyzer reporting and analysis gives you the understanding and insight into your file server storage usage. With FileAnalyzer, you will immediately see how your file storage is being used and wasted.

Clean Up:

FileAnalyzer 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.

2. Deleting

File Archiver goes through your current file database and purges your system of any unwanted or unnecessary files. This frees up huge amounts of storage and will help you to reclaim vital server storage.

3. Archiving

Sometimes you might want to keep hold of files. File Archiver allows you to archive files by protecting them and moving older versions of files to the archive space.

4. Stubbing

You can reclaim storage space without disrupting your users. Remove older files from file servers and replace them with an intelligent “stub” that automatically retrieves the original file from the archive.

File Archiver is designed to intelligently respond to policies that you set, depending on your needs. This frees up huge amounts of space for your company and allows you to cut down on expensive storage spaces.
