Disk Monitor installs on a single Windows Server as a Windows Service. The service scans Windows directories using Windows Shares. Folder size is calculated on Unix and Linux based operating systems remotely through SSH and SFTP. SMART and File Access Permissions Reports are generated on Windows servers remotely using WMI. Results can be displayed in the Remote Management Console, saved to file or emailed to your team.
Get notified or log every time a file or sub-directory is created, modified, deleted or renamed with our Directory Watcher. Further configure the Directory Watcher to limit results to a specific set of files using inclusion and exclusion masks. For example, log all changes to files with a .txt extension but exclude files named *_output.txt. Results can be emailed or simply logged to a CSV file fulfilling compliance requirements.
The file count monitor notifies you when a directory contains more that the expected number of files. For example, get notified when a directory contains more than 1000 files. Once a monitor threshold such as 1000 files is crossed, the directory monitor will fire actions such as remotely executing a script or sending an email.
To satisfy compliance requirements such as those laid out by Sarbanes Oxley auditors, Disk Monitor includes file and folder access permissions reports. Access permission reports list the permissions assigned to all users and groups for a given directory, sub-directories, and the files contained within. For example, generate a report that lists which users have read access to a directory that contains financial documents. Once complete interactively filter by directory and/or user, print the report, export the report to an HTML document, text file or CSV file.
Disk Monitor enables you to generate on-demand File Extension Reports. File Extension Reports list the present extensions, total size and file count. Once complete you can drill down into a directory structure to see to which sub-directory files of interest reside, print the report and export to a file.
Use Disk Monitor to quickly identify the largest files on all your servers. Our interactive Largest Files Reports enable you to scan Windows and Unix/Linux flavors running SSH for the largest files on a disk or within a directory. Once complete you can review and delete files directly from within the report or export the report to a file.
File Access Reports list out recently access files or files not accessed since a specific date. For example, you can receive a report that lists the top ten recently accessed files within a directory structure.
Temporary Files Reports list all SYSTEM and USER temporary directories on managed computers. The total size, file count, and sub-directory count is summed and listed. Once complete you can drill down into the temporary sub-directories to view the details, delete directory contents or export the report to a file.
Do you find yourself logging into your production web servers and database servers every month to manually remove old SQL Server backups, MySQL backups and IIS logs? We did, but not anymore thanks to Disk Monitor. Disk Monitor includes a Directory Cleaner component that automatically deletes old database backups, IIS logs and any type of file once it has reached an age, such as 2 weeks old.
Do some of the Windows services or applications you run constantly fill up your hard drives with temporary files? Don't get caught with a full hard drive. Free up your time by using Disk Monitor to automatically delete temporary files contained in all the SYSTEM, USER and Internet Explorer temporary directories on both local and remote Windows computers.

Disk Monitor is a functional sub-set of Corner Bowl Server Monitor and consists of three major components:
The Console is used to configure monitors and reports.
The Windows Service executes scheduled monitors and fires alerts and actions.
The Tray Icon responsible for firing user interface dependent alerts (message box, sound, system tray popup, etc.) including application status.
Disk Monitor can be installed on both 64-bit and 32-Bit Windows.
8 GBs of available memory, 32 GBs suggested for large disk summary reports.
The installation detects if the .Net Framework 4.8 is already installed. If not, the framework is automatically downloaded from Microsoft and then installed. Please note the framework may take a significant amount of time to install. Please be patient while the installation completes.
To access and manage remote resources Log Manager requires domain administrator credentials. If off-domain, then local administrator credentials. The first time the application is run, the onboarding wizard will prompt you to assign then necessary credentials to the service.
Many functions within Disk Monitor utilize Microsoft's Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) API (e.g. Event Log management, CPU and memory monitoring). This software includes options to optimize WMI packet size and performance.
Disk Monitor is sold in node packs. Each unique IP address or hostname that is monitored, scanned or managed by the software is a node.
Disk Monitor can be installed on a single host or up to as many hosts as nodes purchased.
For example, a 100 node license would enable an IT professional to install the software on 3 servers with one installation monitoring 50 servers and the other two installations monitoring 25 workstations each for a total of 100 nodes.
After you purchase a license, you have the option through this website or your reseller to upgrade your existing license with more nodes.
Once you have purchased a license, a license key will be emailed to you. If you purchase through a reseller, a claim link will be emailed to you enabling you to retrieve your key from this website. Once you have your key you will register online through the software's management console. If you are installing this software on an Air-Gapped network, you will generate license key files through this website where you will also find detailed instructions on how to apply your Air-Gapped key files.
