File Extensions by Category



This report combines file extensions in to categories. The report uses the srs.current_fs_scandata database view which limits the scope to current scans only. This recipes comes in two styles, either Detailed or Summary. Each version of the report comes with a report layout.

Version 3.6 - 4.0

The report is further limited by the sd.fullpath LIKE portion of the sql where clause. If you remove it, the report will run across all current scan_data.

Content Hash Duplicate File Report


This report utilizes the new added file content hash feature of version 4.0.  The 4.0 scan policy definition gives a new option to Generate file content hashes for All Files or Files uploaded since the last scan.  This option prompts the AgentFS to generate a SHA256 hash of the file content and store the hash in the database where it can be compared against other files that match in content.

New with version 4.1 is the ability to manage the report paths outside of the query via the Report Designer. 

Summary with Quota and Owner


A customer needed to create a report for management that shows the file and folder counts, the users quota, and how much of their quota was being used. This customer wanted all empty directories to be ignored.

This custom query shows a summary of the folders in the path provided on line 7. The report summaries the file and folder counts, size used, the quota value set, and the quota remaining.

Note: This query is written for Active Directory and can be modified for use with eDirectory.

Find long file names in eDirectory

A customer asked for a query to find filenames that are too long, and might cause issues when migrating files from eDirectory to AD. The customer requested that query find filenames longer than 128 characters. The filename length to be reported by changing line 12, and the scope can limited by adding sd.scan_target = '\\server\share' to the where clause. 

Note: If you have downloaded an older version of the is query and have moved to version 3.5 of the product, the old active_fs_scandata views have been replaced with current_fs_scandata.
