Hello EE,

We have a volume on our Windows file server filling with data and I'd like to clean it up.
I am wondering if there is a free tool that would allow us last file usage/access date on a folder and sub folders.

The last access timestamp is not maintained any longer with more recent OS, so it is unreliable for finding out which files are "obsolete".

Do you mean to see "Last Access Date" ? Iin windows explorer --> View --> choose Details and then select the"Date Accessed" from the list.

And for free utility/Tools go with http://www.jam-software.com/filelist/
