File Types
Use Quick Search to find a template, report or dashboard by name. Search is case insensitive, supports partial entries, and will display a list of potential matches.
As you enter the name in the Search field, up to 10 potential matches are displayed. If the template, report or dashboard is shown, you can select and run it directly from the match list. You can also click All Items in the match list to go directly to the Search Results.
Use the Explorer to browse through the StorageConsole templates, dashboards and reports. The navigation pane displays templates organized by products along with user-created, and system folders. This report is located here:
The file types represented in the bar charts enable an at-a-glance insight into storage usage.

Export List
Click this checkbox to launch a window where you can specify the criteria for the file types to be exported. See File List Export in the APTARE StorageConsole User’s Guide.
APTARE StorageConsole File Analytics profiles and categorizes collected data by file type (filename extension). This categorized data is listed in the File Types report, which lists the top 50 file types for the selected volumes/shares.
NOTE: The File Types report is an aggregation at the volume level of only the top 50 file extensions. For a complete list of all profiled file types, use the Export List checkbox, available in the File Types report and several other File Analytics reports; or from the Tools menu list, select: Tools > File List > Export. File List Export represents all filenames profiled for the Portal. Typically, if multiple volumes/shares are selected in the report scope, the File Types report will list less types than what is listed in the exported output.
