Hi,

We used to use a tool "Treesize" to check a share folder duplicate files. but we find that some placeholder will retrieve to original file so that the share folder usage increased. 

May I know is any tool can check share folder duplicate file and avoid the placeholder will become original file?

thx

Hello Ryan,

It might be this article can assist. It describes how to exclude recalls from applications when scanning. (which is what Treesize does)

Hi Gertjan,

Thanks, as docs mention that "This functionality is restricted to processes running locally on a Windows file server and does not work with requests initiated remotely from another server or client system." May I know is any way to avoid initiated remotely from another server or client system as well?
