Program to categorize data based on last access date
Posted on 2013-12-17
I just took on a new client who has a 2TB drive dedicated solely to data storage, and only has 11GB of available space left. The prior IT firm did not do any data management whatsoever. My new client has asked that I move all data files that have not been accessed within the past three (3) years to an external drive to free up space on his main storage drive. I advised my client of the pitfalls of doing a "bulldozer" approach to data management, but he insists. That being said, I need a program that can accomplish the following:
1. Search his entire data drive and categorize it by Accessed date.
2. Move those files to a new hard drive while retaining the original folder hierarchy.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
