File System Snapshots
FolderSizes has the ability to create file system metadata snapshots, from which reports can be generated later on. Use snapshots to:
- Generate reports (even searches) in the future - without re-scanning
- Generate reports even when the target file system(s) are offline
- Provide reporting & analysis capabilities to users lacking direct file system access
- Create a history of file system state that can be used for trend analysis
Snapshots can be created for any file system that is accessible to FolderSizes – including local and remote (network) file systems. A single Snapshot can even contain information about multiple, discrete file system paths (e.g. a combination of both local and remote file systems, for example).
For more information, please review our FolderSizes Snapshot white paper.
