Question / Problem

Is there any way to control the level of sub directories SpaceObServer stores in the database?

Answer / Solution

No. SpaceObServer is not able to restrict the level of file system information that is stored in the database. The scan has to traverse the complete file system tree to sum up the directory sizes. We have to store information of all files to implement many important features in SpaceObServer like the oldest, biggest, temporary and duplicate file search and also statistics about file owner and file extensions.
