How many drives per server does one (1) report cover at any given point in time?
One. You can generate report data for a single drive on your server at a time. To generate a report for another drive on the same server, you must do so sequentially, which overwrites previous data. To generate reports for drives on two or more servers, you need to place two or more orders.
How can I get a demo version of the Storage Assessment Report?
A sample report will appear in your license server account once you register and before you pay the invoice issued. Use the time frame controls to refine the sample data by year, month, week or day. Hover your mouse over any of the graphs to view additional information about the sample data.
What happens after the 30-day access period ends?
Storage Assessment Report orders are automatically deleted from your licensing server account once they expire, and you cannot renew them. If you want to use the service again, you must register for a new order.
Why do I see a sample report when I access my account?
A sample report will appear in your license server account once you register and before you pay the invoice issued. If you have provided payment but you still see the sample report, this means that your data has not been uploaded and processed yet. Your actual report(s) is generated once you provide payment and run the Data Collection tool on your machine(s).
