Can anyone recommend a utility that can scan specified directory locations (network shares specifically) and return all files older than a certain date?
I am looking to implement a data retention policy at my workplace. As our amount of data grows it puts a large strain on our backup routines. I would like to move old data to some sort of archival system.
Extra points for the ability to move queried old files to another location for archival and the ability to create schedules for when this occurs.
EDIT: Windows Shop. Mostly Windows 2003 Servers.
In this particular case, this isn't mission critical data. Just various user documents on network shares. The archival system would simply be to move old data to a removable device off site once a month. Most data will most likely never be accessed again but I would like at least one copy to disk as opposed to simply deleting it.
