Why SpaceObServer:

  • Regular and automatable storage scans

  • Recognize increased disk space on folder level

  • Identify unnecessary files

  • Automated reporting via OLE Automation

  • Cross-platform SSH and Exchange mailboxes scans

Analyze Drives and Directories

SpaceObServer scans local and network drives as well as Exchange mailboxes using a background service and stores their structure, sizes and properties in an SQL database. Linux and Unix file systems can be scanned via SSH (Secure Shell). In an Explorer-like user interface the collected data can be viewed and browsed in hierarchical or tabular views, 3D bar, pie, line charts and tree maps. Using the archived data you are able to track the development of the space usage from past to present, and forecast future size usage.

Find Redundant Files and Similar Folders

A flexible file search, with predefined searches for very big, old or obsolete files allows filtering and listing files directly from the database. Find duplicate files and similar folder structures with the search feature.

Operate via Remote

The SpaceObServer Add-ons SpaceObServer Remote Client and SpaceObServer Web Access (sold separately) you can access scan results from other machines or via your internet browser. Learn more.
