Search for backup data using inSync

inSync Private Cloud Editions: File:/tick.png Elite File:/tick.png Enterprise

Overview

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

You can view the search results on the Data Analytics page or send the search results 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.
