About Novell File Reporter

Enterprise networks must store ever more data. As a result they may possibly not only lose track of things, but as well the control over the accesses on the information resources.

The increasing digitalization of documents and business processes may contribute to the reduction of the mountains of files, however, the amount of stored information is not being reduced at all. On the contrary: more and more data are saved. Legal prerequisites for the business processes’ archiving contribute their share to this true explosion of data volume just like the common requirement to have access to information at anytime and anywhere.

The Novell File Reporter provides you answers to questions like:

  • Does your storage infrastructure really work with an optimum capacity?
  • Who has access to which storage location, directories, folders and data?
  • Which user and user groups have which access rights?
  • Which data are stored in which location – are there „dead files“ or redundant storage?
  • How often are the folders and files opened or edited?
  • Which data should be highly available, which could be archived?


By using the Novell File Reporter you are able to reliably inventory your information treasures, to generate meaningful reports about the storage and the security situation and thus paving the way for further optimization in processes, security and compliance.

The Novell File Reporter takes all your data on all your storage networks within your organization into account if necessary and will for the security reports also inform you about the directory services’ (like NetIQ eDirectory or Microsoft Active Directory) inherent information regarding access rights and users.
