Report on File Owners

Owner Analysis: Who owns what and where?

The storage usage per user is sliced and presented in multiple dimensions to give you an instant indication of where “anomalies” can be found. These displays help you understand where potential problems are located, so that you can address those immediately.

One example is where the storage use per user is grouped by their last file system access, so that you can pinpoint users that owns a lot of data and hasn’t been active with their data for a long time. That might indicate that there is space to be reclaimed.

Finding large or rarely used folders

Getting a clear picture of which folders or shares take up the most or the least space can be cumbersome. Or identifying which folders have been accessed most recently or vice versa. WhatData visualizes your largest folders/shares in a color-coded Tree-map to help you quickly identify large or rarely used ones.

File Aging Analysis

Aging Analysis: Spot the old and stale data

WhatData analyzes when files were created, accessed or last modified, and visually groups them by the number of files or the amount of storage they take up. This presents you with an instant view of how mature your data is, what your “data demographics” looks like.

Size Analysis: Sizing up your data

By grouping files (the number of files or the amount of storage they take up) in size buckets, it gets easy to assess just how much of your data is of what size. WhatData arranges your data and categorizes them in Huge, Large, Medium, Small, Tiny etc types of file classes to help you spot the size distribution across your storage.
