PA Storage Monitor Pro edition is the best solution for monitoring large disk volumes, reporting on the stored content, tracking quotas and more. If you are concerned about storage resources, how they are used and how they grow, PA Storage Monitor Pro is designed for for you.

It catalogs one or more entire disk volumes, including information on directories, files and file owners. This catalog can then be used to generate rich reports giving you insight into what is being stored, how new or old the data is, who your heavy users are and much more.
