Content and Usage reports provide a quick overview of your farm storage and content usage, features usage and activations and SharePoint structure.

    • Storage Metrics – shows you the storage space used by each SharePoint object on the farm. You can easily see the object’s size relative to the total size of the content database and quickly find the biggest storage space consumer.
    • Unmodified Content– gives you an easy overview of how much time has elapsed since certain SharePoint documents have been modified. With the Content Type filter, you can select the type of data you’re interested in.
  • Database Growth
    • DB Size Growth – shows farm database size over a given time period. Use the forecast option to predict future database growth.
