Finding Unused Files For a Specific Time

Hello everyone!


I have a FAS2050 and would like to know if there is a way to search through all my volumes at once for files that are old (let's say more than 3 years old) and that have not been accessed by anyone or any system since, let's say, for a year or even three years.


My storage has a lot of data, and a lot of old data. I can't afford to expand my storage and need to delete those really old files that no one has had the need to even open it.


My users can't and won't (they really don't care if I run out of space) go by themselves deleting those old files.


So what I need is a way to search and find all my old files given a time period (older than three years) and that have not been accessed since one or more years. Then a way to delete all of them at once as well.


If not possible, I'm open for suggestions on how to better deal with my situation.


Thanks in advance for your time.




P.S.: I wasn't too sure if this was the right place to post this, so if not the right place I'm sorry and please let me know where is the right place to do so.
