Software for finding all kind of files and information

HI

I pretend to audit the type of information stored on servers, I would appreciate if you recommend any software capable of search information and give the list of files indexed by type (location) in order to decide what must be deleted. If it´s free would be better.

Thanks in advance.

well, if you go to a drive and type (from the command prompt)

dir /b /s > list.txt

it'll give you all of the files and directories into a text file called list.txt.

Guys:

All your information has been quite useful, a final question: what about windows search and the operating system performance ?

Thanks.
