The FSA Reporting data analysis reports

FSA Reporting's data analysis reports provide information about the active data on target file servers and on the data that Enterprise Vault has archived from them.

Note the following:

  • Before you can use the data analysis reports, you must configure FSA Reporting in addition to Enterprise Vault Reporting.

  • The data analysis reports do not include any data until FSA Reporting has performed at least one data scan.

  • The data analysis reports include data only for the volumes and physical drives that are enabled for FSA Reporting data collection, and that FSA Reporting has scanned.

Table: FSA Reporting's data analysis reports provides a brief description of each data analysis report.
