File Attender®

Network and User Hard Drive Archiving

File Attender is a Lotus Notes-based IM and file management software that manages the files on a user's hard drive or on a Domino server, which includes files on any random access storage that the user or server can address (File server, WORM, SANS, NAS, JukeBox, etc.). It provides administrators the ability to centralize files, and when archiving from a user hard drive, perform back-ups on a scheduled basis. File Attender was designed to be as non-invasive as possible. It is a platform independent, Domino-based file management tool that does not require any additional hardware or software.

Typical needs include the ability to:

  • Files on user hard drives and Domino servers
  • Domino IM logs
  • Files on any random access storage device
