Storage Reports

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

On the Storage Reports node of the File Server Resource Manager MMC snap-in, you can perform the following tasks:

  • Schedule periodic storage reports that allow you to identify trends in disk usage.

  • Monitor attempts to save unauthorized files for all users or a selected group of users.

  • Generate storage reports instantly.

For example:

  • You can schedule a report that will run every Sunday at midnight, generating a list that includes the most recently used files of the previous two days. With this information, you can monitor weekend storage activity and plan server downtime that will have less impact on those users that connect from home over the weekend.

  • A report can be run, at any given time, to identify all duplicate files in a volume on a server, so disk space can be quickly reclaimed without losing any data.

  • You can run a File by File Group report, to identify how storage resources are segmented across different file groups; or a File by Owner report, to analyze how individual users are using shared storage resources.
