4. Locate valuable storage space
Use reports and alerts that help to discover reusable storage resources. Often valuable storage is used for backup data from old servers and renamed drives. Virtualization projects in particular result in irrelevant data in the backup system.
In most cases, the original data has already been copied to new servers and is being backed up from there. The amount of reclaimable storage can be significant.
