FTP Hosting Data Maintenance & Data Pruning

FTP Hosting Data Maintenance Data PruningYou've got your new FTP Hosting package and have lots of suppliers and clients logging in and storing data - its filling up faster than you expected, what next? Quite often you'll be suprised how quickly you can start filling up your online storage, lots of our customers start off using our FTP Hosting services for one main purpose and then realise the system can be used as storage for a whole lot more. Maybe you originally wanted to share files with your colleagues for off-site working and now you are using your FTP Hosting for an automated data processing system, supplier/client data transfer and online backup storage, all at the same time.

With any storage system, there is always going to be data residue of files no longer required or being updated. We have had several requests from clients asking for a feature where files X days old in their FTP Hosting data structure could be automatically deleted or archived. As a result we can now offer a customisable solution to keep your data usage down, clean your data structure and save space at a set interval.
