Discover File Properties

Lansweeper’s advanced discovery and recognition capabilities can help you to discover any file properties, wherever the files are located. Our software’s file property scanning allows the use of parameters to search for the specified file location in Program Files, Program Files (x86) and the Windows directory. Linux file scanning lets you scan any directory or file for details. Once your network has been scanned you can access the information retrieved by the file scan on the asset’s page in your Lansweeper web console.

No problem, we also have custom reporting features that can help you find and analyze specific data tailored to your unique needs. You can, for example, analyze the anti-virus definition file age to ensure they are frequently updated.
