Searching through data backed up using inSync

Searching data backed up using inSync

You can search the data backed up using inSync based on a combination of parameters such as profile, user, file name, file size, and so on. For example, you can search for all video files between 250 MB and 3 GB backed up by a specific user or users of a specific profile. 

You can have the search results displayed to you on the Data Analytics page or have them emailed to your registered email address. 

Note: Druva recommends that you use specific terms for searching information. Do not perform blanket searches such as search for a file *.* under All Profiles. Instead, use appropriate filters such as profile, user, date of modification, and so on to narrow down the search. inSync searches all storage to provide you the requested information. Depending on the data stored in the storage, blanket searches will take excessive time. For example, if you have a 32 TB of data, inSync may take a longer duration then expected to search for *.* and report the results.
