Network and Storage Protocols

File laast accessed by user- CIFS share


Hello everyone,


I needed to know as to when a given file was last accessed.


We have a File System with sub directories that is shared by multiple users using CIFS protocol - 7 Model. I needed to know as to when they were last accessed. Please help.

What we are planning to do it to archive the sub-directories that are not accessed for a long time.


Thanks again from the help!


Much appreciated.




You may need a script, I hope. the NMSDK API "file-get-file-info" can be helpful.
