I have a problem with find which are the folders not Accessed on my file server for a long time.

Hi,

I have a problem with find which are the folders not Accessed on my file server for a long time.
Say i have 50 main folders under E drive.
Inside weach folder i have more than 6 GB data in each folder.I know that some folders are not being used at all from a long time.As i am running short of sopace i want find those folders and take a backup and delete them.So that i can restore when some one comes for it.

Is there any way to monitor folders for such tasks.
Auditing is there but for such huge data i think it will choke the logs and speed.

Regards
Sharath

you can use the search utility in windows....

from the start menu, select search > files and folders
then click on the all files and folders
in the search filename box type *.*
in the drive select the drive you want to search
then select When was is modified
then select specify date
and you can enter in a date range, and select accessed date - this way you can search for folders that haven't been access for a long time...

hope this helps,
denis
