FSRM reports concerning files with user-defined extensions


Question: Is it possible to create specific reports concerning .PST files with FSRM ?

Yes, it is possible to create a customised report for files with .PST extension.
By default only a specific set of extensions are included. To add more extensions of your choice, follow the steps mentioned below.

1. Go to ‘Edit SRM File Types’
2. Setup -> Options -> SRM -> SRM File Types -> Edit
     Or directly access the below link
3. In the ‘File Types’ textbox, add “.pst” file extension
4. After this, start the Filewalk on the concerned SRM path.
5. Once the filewalk is complete, go to Control Center -> Home -> FSRM,

     click on the path link listed under "SRM  Paths Total"

     This opens up the ‘SRM Path Details’ page

     & under ‘Files By Type’ you can the see the count & total size of .pst files.
6. Click on the link labeled ‘.pst’ for more details

In the description above, step 5 says to go to the SRM Path Details’ page.  I can seem to find where that page is.  Where is it?  Thank you.


Hi genec, Elaborated on step5. Please let me know if it is useful.
