I have 100+ main file server folders, each with
100+ subfolders on a standard DELL local storage
RAID-5 Windows 2012 R2 server
-----------------------------------------------------
How can I do one or both of the below on files

 ** Option #1
      ** get a report showing the files


 ** Option #2
      ** automatically move files from //serverName/folderName
         to //serverName/folderNameOLD so I can then
            1. make them READ-ONLY
            2. wait 90 days
            3. write to backup tape
            4. remove from my network
