Sorting the List

You can sort the "Disk Safes" list on the basis of column content in ascending or descending order. You might want to put a list of Disk Safe descriptions in alphabetical order or compile a list of Disk Safes by their size from largest to smallest. Sorting data helps you quickly visualize and understand your replication data better, organize and find the Disk Safes that you want, and ultimately make more effective decisions.

You can sort text data (A to Z or Z to A) and numbers (smallest to largest or largest to smallest).

The sort criteria are saved in the system, so that sorting is reapplied each time you access the "Disk Safes" list.

To sort the list in ascending/descending order, follow the instructions below.

1. Move the mouse pointer over the column header.

2. Click on the column header and it will sort in either ascending or descending order.


Managing Items Per Page

To go to a specific page, type in the page number and press <Enter>.

To turn over the pages, you can use the "Arrow" buttons.

The total number of existing pages is shown after the slash.
