Good Day!

Regarding my nutanix’s file server data has been grown up very well. So I need to clear some non-moving file because Nutanix is quite expensive storage I need allow Nutanix to store for active file only. I would like to confirm with you as below

  1. Can we listed non-moving files via command line ?
  2. Can we manage non-moving files to another place ?   

      (ex. backup server, NAS, Arcserve)

Hi @Pawarit 

  1. When you say non-moving files you meant the file which are not touched for couple days? If so, how many days?
  2. Yes, you can back-up the File Server through Data Protection to another Remote Site.

Please refer Nutanix Files and Data Protection Guides
