File Management Tasks

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

File management tasks automate the process of finding subsets of files on a server and applying simple commands. These tasks can be scheduled to occur periodically to reduce repetitive costs. Files that will be processed by a file management task can be defined through any of the following properties:

  • Location

  • Classification properties

  • Creation time

  • Modification time

  • Last accessed time

File management tasks can also be configured to notify file owners of any impending policy that will be applied to their files.


Individual File Management Tasks are run on independent schedules.
