File Archiver is a software application that runs on a Windows Server (real or virtual) with small Agent software that runs on your file servers (or with access to your network servers). The agents gather file information on your servers, execute policies and retrieve files from the archive. You can set up policies by any folder path(s) on your file servers (WatchPoints). The agents run policies according to a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule and take actions - archive and stub files (replace files with shortcuts), just archive a file, or delete a file.
Archived files are de-duplicated, compressed, encrypted, given GUID names then stored in Archive Volumes (Windows folders) that can be located on any low cost, storage device - local disk, SAN, NAS, USB, etc. File Archiver provides detailed reporting information on your server such as largest files, oldest files, top file types and space lost through duplication helping you to clean up your servers and get visibility into your data.
