Having large volumes of unstructured legacy data tied up in file shares can be a huge problem for an organization, as file shares are known to have poor content management capabilities for search, permissions, metadata, and remote access.

Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

AvePoint, the leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions for social enterprise collaboration platforms, today announced the general availability of DocAve File Share Navigator 3.0, with enhanced performance and support for Microsoft SharePoint 2013.

DocAve File Share Navigator 3.0 increases content findability by leveraging SharePoint’s full metadata-based search across multiple, distributed file servers, allowing organizations to easily view and access file share content through SharePoint 2013 without migrating it into SharePoint’s SQL Server content databases.

Key features of File Share Navigator include:

  •     SharePoint 2013 Support: Easily connect a File Share Links list in SharePoint 2013 by adding the appropriate app in SharePoint.
  •     PowerShell Support: Sync links lists from PowerShell and see data about your File Share Links lists, such as the configured storage path, without having to go into SharePoint to visit each list one by one.
  •     Failover Service: If the DocAve File Share Navigator Service goes down, File Share Navigator 3.0 automatically tries to restart it every minute. Users can still successfully upload files to the file share and they will be accessible in SharePoint once the service is up again, which maximizes usage continuity with minimal impact on the end-user.

“Having large volumes of unstructured legacy data tied up in file shares can be a huge problem for an organization, as file shares are known to have poor content management capabilities for search, permissions, metadata, and remote access,” said George Petrou, Chief Technical Officer, AvePoint. “DocAve File Share Navigator will help guide your organization toward the best option for dealing with unstructured data, providing the most appropriate alternative to dealing with file shares while simultaneously optimizing your SharePoint environment both on-premises or in the cloud.”

DocAve File Share Navigator 3.0 enables organizations to optimize and increase file share activity through SharePoint while avoiding costs and disruptions associated with migration plans. User adoption and collaboration is accelerated due to a familiar user experience, including drag-and-drop uploads through Windows Explorer windows to which knowledge workers are accustomed.
