Hello.  We are running Business Objects 3.1 in our environment.  We have a clustered environment and the filestore sits on a NAS.  We are encountering a problem where our filestore/data consumption is growing too quickly.  The servers hosting the environment are running Windows 2008 R2, the web interface and Intelligence Server are sitting on separate servers.

We have performed the suggested utilities such as pruning, setting limits, etc.  We have run Query builder and am not finding an overly large item that may be taking up more than it's share.  What other options are there?  We've been searching, but the mainstream maintenance items noted above really aren't making an impact.  In fact, I ran prune yesterday and in the log it did note that it cleaned up quite a bit, but the overall size when looking at the metrics for the Filestore Input/output actually increased instead of decreased.  The prune is running correctly, and we understand that this is only going to clean up orphaned folders and not have a large impact.

What other utilities have you used successfully to trim the fat?  

Any assistance is appreciated.
