DiskBoss Main GUI Application
The DiskBoss main GUI application integrates disk space analysis, file classification, file search, file organizing, file synchronization and data migration capabilities around an easy-to-use, yet powerful file navigator allowing one to execute many types of file management and analysis operations in a single mouse click. In addition, the user is provided with the ability to pre-configure disk space analysis and file management operations as user-defined commands and execute them fully automatically using the DiskBoss's command line utility while saving report files or submitting analysis results to a centralized SQL database.
Disk Space Analyzer
DiskBoss includes a built-in disk space analyzer capable of scanning local disks, network shares and NAS storage devices, analyzing disk space utilization and showing directories consuming most of the disk space and displaying what types of files are located in these directories. Moreover, DiskBoss Ultimate allows one to send e-mail notifications, execute file management operations and/or custom commands when one or more user-specified disk space analysis conditions are met.
Disk Space Usage Pie Charts
Pie charts are available for disk space utilization analysis, file classification and duplicate file detection operations. Depending on the current operation and the selected mode, the pie chart dialog allows one to display the amount of used disk space per directory, the amount of used disk space per file class or category, the number of files per directory and the amount of files per file class or category.
DiskBoss allows one classify one or more disks or directories using multiple file classification plugins capable of recognizing more than 2,500 file types. In addition, DiskBoss Ultimate provides the ability to write custom file classification plugins using a simple, XML-based format and physically reorganize files on the disk according to the file hierarchy defined in a standard or user-custom file classification plugin.
Duplicate Files Finder
Users are provided with a built-in duplicate files finder capable of reliably detecting duplicate files in one or more disks or directories and allowing one to replace duplicate files with links to originals, moving duplicates to another location or just deleting all duplicate files. Moreover, DiskBoss Ultimate allows one to define one or more rule-based duplicates removal actions instructing DiskBoss how to detect the original file in each specific duplicate file set and what duplicates removal action to perform.
Analyzing Network Servers and NAS Devices
DiskBoss provides the ability to scan the network, detect all network servers and NAS storage devices and analyze all accessible network shares. The user is provided with the ability to select one or more network servers and NAS storage devices and then perform disk space analysis, file classification, file search and duplicate files search operations allowing one to very easily analyze and search files in hundreds of network servers and NAS storage devices.
Batch Analysis and File Search Operations
DiskBoss Server and DiskBoss Enterprise provide the ability to execute disk space analysis, file search, file classification and duplicate files search operations on hundreds of network servers and NAS storage devices and generate an individual report for each analyzed server or NAS storage device.
High-Speed File Synchronization
DiskBoss file synchronization engine allows one to synchronize pairs of disks or directories very fast end efficiently. Users are provided with multiple one-way and two-way file synchronization modes, a stream-based file synchronization capability especially optimized for huge file systems containing millions or files, performance tuning options and rule-based file synchronization capabilities allowing one to limit any file synchronization operation to specific file types.
Secure File Synchronization
DiskBoss Server provides secure file synchronization operations allowing one to synchronize files between servers without using network shares while encrypting transferred files using the AES-256 encryption algorithm. The user is provided with multiple one-way and two-way file synchronization modes, flexible performance optimization options, file matching rules allowing one to synchronize specific types of files or file groups, exclude directories and advanced file synchronization options.
Automated File Management
DiskBoss file organizing engine allows one to define multiple, rule-based file management actions that should be performed on files matching user-specified rules. The user is provided with the ability to copy, move, move and link, compress or delete files according to the file type, size, extension, last access, modification or creation dates or any combination of the mentioned and other file matching rules. Sophisticated file organizing operations may be tested in the preview mode, saved as user-defined commands and executed fully automatically using the DiskBoss's command line utility.
Rule-Based File Search
The DiskBoss built-in file search tool provides the user with the ability to search files by the file name, path, type, size, extension, text and binary patterns, creation, last modification and access dates, JPEG EXIF tags, etc. In addition, DiskBoss Ultimate allows one to automatically save search reports, execute file management operations and/or custom commands and send e-mail notifications with search results.
Real-Time Disk Change Monitor
DiskBoss Ultimate includes a built-in disk change monitor capable of detecting file creations, modifications, renames and deletions in real-time. The disk change monitor provides the user with the ability to categorize and filter detected file system changes by change type, file type, size, file owner, etc. In addition, DiskBoss allows one to automatically save reports, send e-mail notifications, execute file management operations and/or custom commands when the disk change monitor reaches a user-specified number of changes.
SQL Database Integration
DiskBoss Ultimate allows one to submit disk space analysis, file classification, duplicate files detection, disk change monitoring and file search results into a centralized SQL database through the ODBC database interface. Results may be submitted to an SQL database using the DiskBoss's main GUI application or the command line utility, which may be used to periodically perform disk analysis, search or monitoring operations on multiple servers or desktop computers and submit all reports to a centralized SQL database.
DiskBoss Command Line Utility
DiskBoss Ultimate and DiskBoss Server provide a command line utility, which is capable of performing disk space analysis, file classification, duplicate files detection, file synchronization, file organizing, file search, disk change monitoring, file copy, file delete and data wiping operations from shell scripts and batch files. In addition, the command line utility allows one to control and configure one or more DiskBoss Servers locally or through the network.
DiskBoss Server is a server-based product version, which runs in the background as a service and is capable of performing all disk space analysis and file management operations in a fully automatic, unattended mode. DiskBoss Server may be managed and configured locally or through the network using a freeware network client GUI application or the DiskBoss command line utility.
Disk Space Usage Rer Host
DiskBoss Server and DiskBoss Enterprise provide the user with the ability to submit disk space analysis, file classification and duplicate files reports from multiple servers and desktop computers to a centralized SQL database, perform advanced report analysis operations and display charts showing disk space usage, file categories and duplicate files per host.
Disk Space Usage Per User
DiskBoss Server and DiskBoss Enterprise provide the ability to analyze disk space usage, file classification and duplicate files reports from one or more servers or desktop computers and display the used disk space, file categories and the amount of duplicate files per user.
