Batch Disk Space Analysis Operations

DiskSavvy Server and DiskSavvy Enterprise provide the ability to scan the network, detect all network servers and NAS storage devices, execute one or more pre-configured disk space analysis commands on hundreds of network servers and NAS storage devices and generate an individual report for each analyzed server, NAS storage device or network share.

Batch Disk Space Analysis Operations

In the simplest case, just press the 'Network' button located on the main toolbar, search all network servers and NAS storage devices on the network, select one or more servers to be analyzed, press the right mouse button and select the 'Batch Disk Space Analysis' menu item.
