The Quick Scan tool will generate a detailed report by scanning your files to quickly estimate how much storage could be reclaimed using NXPowerLite. It can scan between 2-4 TB an hour, so a scan will usually complete in minutes on a typical server.
Quick tips before you start
- We recommend running the scan over all the data on your server(s).
- Quick Scan is completely read-only - no files will be changed by running the scan.
- Please ensure the user running the scan has 'Read' access to all the data on all of the servers/drives you wish to scan.
- Quick Scan results will be affected if some or all of your files have already been compressed with NXPowerLite. Quick Scan cannot distinguish files that have already been optimized by NXPowerLite and are unlikely to reduce further.
