File Server Resource Manager is a feature set in the File and Storage Services server role in Windows Server that helps administrators classify and manage stored data in file servers.
- File Classification Infrastructure - automates the processes behind classification so administrators have a more effective and insightful way to manage data.
- File Management Tasks - helps administrators apply conditional actions or policies based on how they are classified.
- File screening management - helps administrators control what kinds of files end users are allowed to store on file servers.
- Quota management - helps administrators limit how much space can be used for folders and volumes and can also be applied for new folders and volumes.
- Storage reports - helps administrators identify disk usage trends and how data is classified.
File Server Resource Manager had two major changes with the Windows Server 2012 R2 release. Administrators can now set a maximum number of files for storage reports and can clear any classification properties that don't apply to a file that's been updated.
