Identification of the data owner

Nobody lets the carpenter clean up his filing cabinet

Nobody would think of going to the cabinet maker to ask him how many shelves he could move, how many folders to put in, when to remove the folders, or whom to give the key to the cabinet , But this absurd situation prevails in most IT environments. The topic of structure and permissions is mostly the topic of the IT department. However, the only owner who knows what to do with the data is the data owner.

How do you find the data owners of all directories?

This question is practically unanswerable with Windows on-board resources in established structures. migRaven.24/7 solves the problem by scanning the NTFS file owners and providing an overview of who created how many files in a directory. The user who created the most files is either the data owner of the directory or knows the data owner. In the next step you can migRaven.24/7 Webinterface simply assign the data owner rights to the identified file owner.

From this point on, the data owner can become active himself and decide that, for example, certain directories can be archived obsolete and ad hoc, authorizations must be adapted or archiving policies should be assigned to specific directories.
