You can analyze file server data by adding a server group. When the data collection job runs for the server group, a quick scan is performed on backed-up data.
Before You Begin
If you created an inventory before Feature Release 19, run a data collection job for the inventory, and then add a schedule to the inventory. When the assets are refreshed, server groups are automatically included in the inventory. Inventories created in Feature Release 19 and more recent versions automatically include server groups and schedules.
